City Leaders Face Tough Decisions on 2014-15 Budget
February 7, 2014 - Mayor Madeline Rogero and her staff at a Friday budget retreat with City Council outlined "tough decisions" due to steep fixed-cost increases for the 2014-15 fiscal year.
City officials detailed the City's most recent accomplishments and proposed some strategic short-term investments aimed at protecting City infrastructure and leveraging private-sector partnerships in a way that will continue to grow the city's revenue base.
However, costs for the City's unfunded pension liability are projected to rise by $7.8 million next year - prompting the Mayor to tell Council members that she's preparing two budget scenarios for 2014-15: One budget with 6 percent cuts, and another one that would maintain the city's recent momentum.
