City Hall paying twice for same work

As a resident and taxpayer, seems that City Hall is stuffed with employees with fat salaries and pensions, but then City Hall still hires "consultants" to do the same job that these employees are being paid to suppose to do. Like this $25000 contract for one woman to provide "publicity" for the multi-million $$$ Fire House Center; but the City also has a $75000 "public information officer" (who will being getting probably a $75000 pension too).
"Approval to award contract to Barbara Lewis, Attention Business Communications in the amount of $25,000 to provide ongoing publicity and marketing services for the Firehouse Arts Center" - City Hall approving this on Tuesday night.
Why should City Hall spend 2x the money for the same work ?!? Can't City Halll get work out of these public employees?
I think we should spend the money on police officers or fire fighters, not consultants and information officers to do the same job.
