    Berkeleyside – could we get some reporting from you all on the “City projects large deficits for upcoming fiscal years”? I love barn owls and all but this seems like a big item…

    Our report on the budget is on its way. Patience, patience…

    In case you missed it, here’s our last report on the budget, from December.

    We’ll have an update (from this week’s meeting) up shortly. It is certainly “sobering” to have a $3 million projected General Fund revenue shortfall, but that can be made up by cost cutting, holding positions open, retirements, etc. I think it’s important to remember that the overall General Fund revenue is $150 million (expenses currently at $153 million) — to keep it in perspective.

    It’s an issue we have followed ( ) and will continue to follow closely. Thx!
