restoring our service standards

Honorable council members,

As you negotiate with the unions this month, please remember that - while we pay and benefit our staff far better than the private sector - our city has not yet restored the full services and infrastructure that residence have paid for. Indeed our city has budgeted to a lower standard for most of the last fifteen years, although residents have paid their taxes (and ever increasing fees) through it all.

If anyone claims that we are now flush with money, please look at our roadways, the backlog at community development, our tennis courts, our city hall hours, our code enforcement, even our leaf collection and street/bike lane sweeping. Oh, then look at our unfunded liabilities.

Please restore our city services and infrastructure.
