On Deck: Benicia’s Budget Crisis
As previously shared, the focus of the meeting will be “Benicia’s Budget Crisis: The Problem and Potential Solutions.” Our city budget’s multimillion dollar shortfall stretches far beyond this year, into the indefinite future. It forces all of us to confront some tough funding decisions:
- What City services are at risk?
- Is there a tax increase in the future?
- How can we increase the City’s revenues?
- What other solutions are available?
Mayor Steve Young, County Supervisor Monica Brown and Assistant City Manager Bret Prebula, who was Benicia’s Finance Director up until December 2022, will explain the nature and extent of this serious challenge and discuss potential approaches to generating revenue or cutting costs. There will then be an opportunity for extended Q&A period.
See you on Tuesday, April 11, and remember: WE’RE MEETING OVER ZOOM. Please invite your friends and anyone who is interested in keeping Benicia thriving. We are really looking forward to seeing you all in person again one day soon in the future.
