Item #26 / Mayor's Staffing Proposal Amendments

Post by Kathie Tovo » Wed Apr 01, 2015 2:45 pm

Colleagues:
As you are aware, the Audit and Finance Committee was asked to review this item. On March 25, the committee unanimously voted in favor of several changes to the original proposal. These changes are reflected below and will be proposed as formal amendments tomorrow. The message board does not preserve formatting, so I am unable to highlight or underline the amended language.

Best,
Kathie Tovo
Chair of Audit and Finance Committee

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN:

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED
Positions or funding will return to the originating department absent an affirmative vote of the Council to continue funding these positions in the FY16 budget.
