This week, the council will consider an ordinance proposed by Billy Carlisle and Rod Farney which aims to revise restrictions on city spending.
Proponents argue that the ordinance is necessary to ensure that the bulk of 2A money goes to streets and street-related infrastructure.
Critics argue that the ordinance will require dramatic cuts in city staff and services in order to increase capital expenditures, which are already large when compared to other city budgets.
The council work session packet, which includes the text of the initiative, is here.
This may be one of the more important decisions the city council makes this year. The topic will be discussed in a work session at 6pm on Monday, November 17. Council will consider the issue during the regular council meeting on Tuesday, November 17.
