Give the new City Manager a 20% raise and give the rank and file pay cuts to meet the budget.... more class separation from our leaders.
Way to go M.V.

The city should lay off more blue collar employees and start using the Day Worker Center for cheap labor with no benefits. The city supports it, so the city should use it. Budget problem solved. Or is the city better than everyone else? Or our some workers just better than others?
