Mayor’s Budget Road Show

| February 20, 2011, 10:02 AM | 2 Comments

Mayor Joshua J. Cohen announces two public forums early next month where he will offer a budget preview ahead of his formal presentation of the fiscal year 2012 budget to the City Council on Monday, March 14.

The Mayor, City Manager Michael Mallinoff and Budget Director Bruce Miller will host the discussions on March 1 and 2. They will focus on, among other things, funding priorities, fees and the financial challenges facing the City going ahead.

The events will be held at:

Mount Olive Community Life Center, 2 Hicks Avenue, Tuesday, March 1, 7:30 p.m.

Georgetown East Elementary School, 111 Dogwood Road, Wednesday, March 2, 7:30 p.m.

“Last year, we right-sized our budget by cutting 13 percent from the City’s budget – the biggest cut of any city in Maryland,” Mayor Cohen said. “Our financial situation has stabilized, but the City has some difficult financial decisions ahead to stay on the right path. The input from residents will be crucial in providing guidance on how we deliver top-notch services effectively.”

For more information, contact the Mayor’s office at 410-263-7997 or at [email protected].

    I suspect the Mayor’s talking points will go something like this. We’ve “right sized” the budeget, incorrectly suggesting there’s nothing more that can be cut from City government.

    That will be immediately be followed by a tax increase.

    In reality, the City is a very long way from being “right sized”.

  2. Bill Kardash says:

    “right sized”? Sure … if you think Annapolis needs 18 departments and 650 employees, while larger (and better managed) MD cities, like Rockville, Gaithersburg and Bowie get by just fine with 8 departments and 400-500 employees. There is a serious concern the Mayor and road show are trying to lay the ground work for a property tax increase. Use fees (like water and sewer) are scheduled to go up again and the infamous “sidewalk tax” is back. Last year, Mayor Cohen said he “would not raise property taxes”. He frequently talks about “cutting 33 jobs” … but he doesn’t mention that almost half of those positions were re-hired as a concession to the union. The City is far from “right-sized” and until that, truly, happens any talk about a property tax increase is off the table.
