Tonight the Committee of the Whole as above talks about being 2.1 Million short. (Only)
This is from losing Round 1 of the fight over Union Contacts, that The City rushed  to sign  then of course told the City Unions to say… well let me put it pound sand this of course  let to the City being sued over the Union Contracts and of course the count saying a Contract is a contract, leading to more  count fights and the city spending more $$ to and have the first count over turned.
As I understand it tonight the Committee of the Whole will start to talk about how to find the 2.1 Million the City is short.
How many City Union jobs will go? How many Street Lights will come down? Will Fire Station #5 get closed?  Will Police Officers get  fired?
Your guess is as good as mine. However I think we are safe to say that City Workers will get fired. Sad yes, very sad. (Update a number of openings in City Staff will not be filled and a three day lay off for City employees, this may change)
Wait it gets better!
Say the City fires 20 workers, starts to shut down Fire Station #5 (Again)then turns around and spends $1 on the  Harbor for dredging  or $1 on RootWorks. How do you feel about that?
Rather  have Fire Stations or more toys for The Downtown?  Can we stop more spending on City Hall? The Roundabout?  Get some of the $$ back  from Deltahawk for not hiring the # Delta Hawk said (How did they hire) ? Maybe just trust Mayor John Dickert to call Obama and get a check?
