Mr. Mayor please stop calling the extra money in the budget a surplus because it’s not. How can you claim that when you still have a deficit? How can you make that claim when people are still working in the City at a 10% decrease in salary? That isn’t a true statement when the City is still closed one day a week. You can’t claim surplus when the city is still understaffed.
Surplus only applies after,
The deficit in the City is paid down.
When the City is open 5 days a week.
When employees of the City get their 10% back.
When the City is at full staffing levels.
