I have read the "Tribune" article from February 8th about the 20 firefighters who could lose their jobs. It was very well written, thank you Daniel, but I am still confused.

If the city has 4 Million Dollars a year in unencumbered EDIT funds this year and presumably in previous years, why are we in such trouble?

We don't have the money to fix our sewers, potholes, sidewalks, etc. but we have all of these unencumbered funds?

As Denzil Washington said in the movie "Philadelphia", "Please explain this to me as if I were a five year old".
