Unions: No new concessions but will continue talks
Regarding the budget, Ward 1 Councilperson Keith Moore expressed reservations about some of the numbers in Exhibit A, the proposed budget presented to council by the Finance Committee. He said he would not vote for it in its current form. Mr. Schneider took that to mean that Mr. Moore would vote only for his own budget and not Exhibit A. There appears to be a growing consensus, though, that whatever version of the 2011 budget council ultimately passes will be approximate only, or “fluid” as Mr. Mumper stated, because expenditures will inevitably change throughout the budget year, which will cause the need to reallocate revenue.
More Finance Committee and Council meetings are scheduled between now and March 29. We will post the schedules when they are available.
