Another proposition on the November 3, 2015 ballot looks sneaky. Maybe some of our readers will take the time to figure out what they are really up to.
Should sections 7.2, 7.3 A, B, C and D of the City Charter relating to the City’s budget adoption procedures and requirements, be amended to require only that which is required by State law?
I suppose getting them to follow state law would be a good start, but why are they trying to reduce the requirements?
I can’t imagine their efforts being designed to help the citizens. If there is something in our city charter about the budget process that does not work well why don’t they put their specific modifications in the ballot language? Instead they are asking to be held to the lowest legal standard.
We deserve better
