This is not from me this was from an email from someone I thought it was very good and should be put up here.
I have questions:
Was Act 345 voter approved? I don’t remember doing that.
The council’s hands are tied? I thought that was the main reason they were there, for the budget.
Berry said he voted for it, but “This budget really, really bothers me,” he said. Why vote for something that concerns the entire city when he feel so bothered by it?
I thought we began this fiscal year with a deficit, but Paletko said the city began the current fiscal year with a $2.4 million fund balance, WTH?
“Due to these inaccurate numbers, I believed that the city would be in a deficit before fiscal year end and we are,” Badalow said. “My issue last year is the same as this year.” If she was right last year, why did council approve it this year? Badalow said she believes there is a deficit currently, and council has asked how large it is and hasn’t gotten an answer. If the city is in a deficit, she said she doesn’t want to support a budget that doesn’t have a deficit reduction plan. Van Houten agreed.
Think anyone can explain these things?
