City’s photocopier budget

In the recent converstation here between Wayne Shulstad and W. Manners, W. Manners added this comment:

“You are absolutely right that the City has accumulated financial obligations that amount to millions but we can’t change those, at least not overnight.

Cost overruns on bidding policies can be stopped dead in their tracks by showing council that the bidding prices are out of whack with the prices that the average joe will spend on similar or identical material. By the way, did you see the photocopier budget for this year? YIKES!”

Can someone supply some detailed numbers re the photocopier budget? Numbers I’ve heard in passing sound very high. Perhaps we could get someone from the City to explain and or defend them.
