Only in Marshall
Where else would a city government hire a consultant to write a business plan for a major facility and agree to pay the person $125/hour for their work without reviewing similar projects that the consultant completed in the past 5 years?

When you pay $125/hour you should expect a professional high-quality product. Marshall did not get that, but you can’t expect someone to hit a home run on their first time at bat. You should expect City staff and the City Commissioners to be better guardians for the city’s money.
