A few potential talking points
When is City Council going to demand real data? There are no structural cuts included in this budget.
Is El Cerrito going to make structural cuts or just ride the bailout money for a bit? Is there going to be a real effort to get community response if there are cuts?
Are Council Members confident with the information provided for the TRAN financing?
The 5 year budget shows an immediate decline. Are council members going to continue to kick the can down the road?
