Administration, Information and Communications Sub-Committee Motion
We formally request that Diane Parro, the Director of Community and Business Engagement, and her staff work closely with Nitish Sharma and this subcommittee to pull together a plan to produce communications on the city's financial situation, to include an explanation of:
- Pension costs,
- Cost Containment activities,
- The financial condition of our infrastructure, and
Organizational efficiencies measured against benchmarks, utilizing appropriate communication vehicles, for example mailers, by July 15th. The execution of this plan needs to happen well in advance of any Council consideration of a sales tax renewal vote in 2020.
