Where the Cuts Come From

by Gotham Gazette Staff, Nov 22, 2008
 

 

The "old" budget figures were in the city's 2009 fiscal budget, approved by the City Council in June. The "new" figures are from the budget modification the mayor proposed in November, which is still awaiting City Council approval. For more on the specific items being cut and the debate over taxes and spending see Bugdet Battle: Round 1.

Budget figures do not include debt service, pension costs, and long term employee health care costs.

*Library figures are skewed because the administration pre-paid costs in the previous budget year. Therefore, budget cuts for major library branches are 2.5 percent for this budget year and 5 percent for fiscal year 2010. Some budget increases, including the police department, are attributed to increases in labor union contracts.
