Next year’s city budget comes in at $989 million.
Last year’s came to $896 million.
That works out to a 10% increase.
Did our population grow 10% last year?
2% is probably a realistic number.
How does the city budget grow? It all comes down to taxes and fees.
We should all know who pays those.
Why are they spending 10% more money when we have only grown about 2%?
We deserve better
