New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has urged the federal government to live within its means. But at the same time the city’s capital debt has nearly doubled since 2000.
In a frantic effort to avoid another chaotic and dangerous situation, the mayor and top agencies released a 15-point action plan to combat future storms, including the one expected to hit Tuesday.
The hearings made it crystal clear — the city’s response to the Dec. 26 blizzard was too little, too late, and key decisions were simply not made by city leaders on autopilot.
Members of the Bloomberg administration will finally be called on the carpet on Monday to publicly explain how they blew the blizzard response.
