Mayor and City Council Continue Clash Over Public Safety Budget
Friday, April 20, 2007
There remains confusion over budget authority and disagreement over pay raises for public safety workers between the mayor and city council. The council may vote on raises for firefighters next week, although the city attorney has said that the council cannot change the mayor's offer to any group, only vote it up or down. Mike Aguirre has also said the 9 percent pay raise for SDPD officers is illegal because it breaks the debt-limit law, and no income stream was identified to pay for it.
