Last year I received a calendar from the Baltimore City Department of Public Works. It had some nice pictures of the mayor and included inane hints like "Rats are a serious health threat!" and "Be Prepared for Winter." It was slim on useful information and mostly pointed me to the city's website.
That seemed a questionable use of funds in a city where we are told there no way to reduce the cost of government. The fact that it didn't arrive until March made it all the more outrageous.
