“Mayor Fung will ask for a 5.46% increase in the tax levy”
Yikes.
Andrew, was there any indication how much of that is because the concessions for the police contract were not accepted?

In this fiscal year, it couldn’t have been a big factor since this year’s savings for the police contract figured to be $400k, and the budget deficit is approx. $7 mil. The cut in state aid is the biggest factor for this year’s deficit.
