Leslie explains that she is coming to Washington, D.C. to ask for federal funding the clean up the Pawnee River, which is a bit of a “fixer-upper”
The citizens of Pawnee want to know what services the government will provide if they are shut down. Ron relishes in the fact that the services aren’t provided
Leslie and Ron propose a list of budget cuts that they believe will help keep the Parks Department operation, but Chris breaks the news that the city’s budget is worse than imagined and the government will need to shut down
Ron is happy that state auditors are coming to slash the Pawnee budget because he feels government spending has gotten out of hand.
Ron isn’t happy that federal money is being spent on providing common resources for the community
