2015-16 Budget

Dear City Council:

In adopting a General Fund budget for 2015-16, I strongly urge the City
Council:
 
1. Not to approve the addition of as many new employees:in development
and planning positions as proposed. New positions should be based on
long-term forecasted needs, not the present surge in development. If extra
staffing is needed to cope with a temporary surge, the City should either
employ temporary employees or contract the work out.
 
2. To base pension contributions on forecasted average pension fund
earnings of 5% a year and not 7.5% a year. The higher number will simply defer
extra unfunded obligations to the future, as it is not known to be
attainable over time.
