RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - There' s nothing quite like priorities. According to journalist Berenice Seara/Extra, Mayor Marcelo Crivella issued Decree 47,108/2020, providing an additional credit of R$180.2 million, and thus reallocating the budget passed by the city councilors.
This money was pulled from Infrastructure (R$45.9 million), of which R$8.2 million from storm drain maintenance! That's right, in a city that experiences crisis during rainstorms, Crivella thought it would be useful to decreas the budget allocated to the issue. Another R$29.2 million came from the preservation of public spaces . . .
