City Council Budget Goofiness

Posted November 19th, 2014 @ 8:47 AM by

The council ended up, to me, looking like whiny kids who didn’t get their way and voted more about who they like or don’t like instead of on a good policy and no one was able to craft a reasonable compromise. Who would believe after all the marching around the capital the council wouldn’t vote for a .5% increase in pay for some employees who got a 1.5% increase (not police and fire) instead of the 3% (police and fire) increase others got? Seriously?

Late yesterday afternoon, Personnel and Finance posted that they would be having a meeting today at 5:00. Scuttlebutt is that there will be a whole series of amendments to remove Huber fees and then take money from some non-profits and get rid of the housing position, and TRC may have an amendment too.
