6% Budget cuts

6% Budget cuts

Postby Nick Pavlis » Fri Feb 21, 2014 8:35 am

Just so you know beforehand, I have eliminated the 202 fund from the 6% budget the Mayor requested. The funds remain in the continuing budget. We have few moving parts in our budget and this is an expense that is discretionary and thus disposable. Eliminating it is well above the level requested, but we should do over and above in my opinion.

Secondly, we will have a tremendous burden on our budget with extra manpower in the office next year as the transition of the current employees occurs. The 90k will certainly help offset the additional expense.

I know this will not be popular but perhaps when our financial picture is better we can reinstate.

Thank you,

Thanks. We all have to do our part to make the tight budget work.
You might also consider cutting those other-city-news type subscriptions. They mostly end up on the floor of gerbil cages...
