Budgets, Big Fix, & Mayoral Votes

Well, it looks like the Parkway’s budget (part of parks and animal control), already running a serious deficit for the past several years, may be spared serious cuts in this year’s deficit reductions, but much will depend on what emerges from the public hearings which begin Thursday, June 12th.

Another note is that of the five local governmental jurisdictions adjacent or close to the Parkway: Citrus Heights, Folsom, Rancho Cordova, Sacramento County and Sacramento City, only the final two are showing deficits this year.

The Big Fix on 1-5 is right on schedule, but the mayoral vote count is heading into ‘hanging chad’ territory with the current plans to release an update total this Thursday, though not yet the final total.

Thursday June 12th will be the 10th day since the vote on Tuesday June 3rd.
