Lynch Provides Budget Analysis

Kevin Lynch is circulating a document about the city budget, providing his take on the financial problems faced by the city, how money should be allocated within the budget, and offering short- and long-term solutions to budget problems. It’s a great read and, frankly, I’m really impressed that he put together this 14-page, single-spaced document. It was a little over a year ago that Kevin provided detailed answers to the questions provided by folks on on the matter of the Meadowcreek Parkway; the point being that this isn’t new territory for him. Download it here as a PDF (116k), and check out tonight’s City Council meeting to see the submission of the draft budget proposal. 03/08 Update: John Yellig has a story about the white paper in today’s Progress.

One thought on “Lynch Provides Budget Analysis”

  1. Wow. Been almost a week since this was posted. I actually downloaded and read KL’s paper. Fewer than 100 hits on this. Can we really be this lazy about conceptualizing how we spend the $106 million our city will spend this year? Do we really prefer to have 50 comments on something like the $5000 spent on Art in Place and zero comments on the philosophy of how we should actually spend the big bucks.

    This silence is scary.
