Letter to the Editor: A local government body asking if it was legal to spend money before doing so? No way!

Dave Penn told the Quincy Park District Board during its Wednesday meeting that, based upon the information he had available, he could not make a determination as to whether or not it was legal for the Park District to make a contribution of $25,000 to the Riverfront Corporation.

Amazing! Imagine a local government body asking if it was legal to expend funds before they actually expend funds. The attorney gives a thoughtful answer — not one they just want to hear. 

And they listen.
