While it's possible that a particular council critter is not trying to buy votes with these expenditures of public funds I think it's perfectly reasonable to assume that that's exactly what they are trying to do.

While I am certainly not a Christian I do find the instruction from Chapter 6 of the Gospel of Matthew on the subject of charitable giving to be sound:

1 "Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2 Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 3 But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly."
