I couldn't make this up if I wanted to

The Atlanta Police Department will have overspent its budget by between $18 million and $22 million by the time the fiscal year ends next month, city finance officials said Thursday.

The increases were caused by overtime, rising fuel and vehicle repair costs, increased spending on health care and errors Chief Financial Officer Janice Davis said in an interview.

Many appeared surprised when they read a page showing the department's projected spending at $191.9 million for the current fiscal year.

$18 million worth of vehicle repair and other misc. bs???? come on now...IT'S TIME WE HOLD OUR GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE.
