Yes, BUT if the millage rate is based on the budget, doesn't there need to be clarity as to just what is exactly in the budget. Seems to me there are questions that need answers like:
1. Is there a 6% utility rate hike included or not
2. How is the extra $950,000 in additional operating expenses being funded; and why almost an additional $1 million can be justified in this economy
It was apparent that there were no answers to these questions that were agreed upon and this raises the issue of "transparency".
Additionally, the question raised by Ken Honecker relative to the cash flow problem in STRP collections versus debt payment was brushed off by the City Manager who stated - come to my office and I will explain it to you. That is NOT transparency and I think all of us are owed an explanation in open forum.
