City Gets Early Start On Budget

EUGENE, Ore. — The Eugene City Council’s getting an early start on next year’s budget.

Councilors held a budget work session Monday evening with the intent of finding out how to get more people involved in the process.

The official budget numbers won’t come out until November, but the deficit projections are in the millions.

Last year the city was about $6 million short.

Councilors are hoping by starting early, they can get even more people involved.

“Our challenge is to figure out how do we use as many channels and as many venues as possible to make sure that we’re hearing from as wide a swath of Eugeneians as we can, so we can craft a budget that really reflects the values and priorities and the needs of this community,” said Laura Illig, budget committee member.

    if you are short, why are you wanting to buy a run down former baseball stadium from a school district who has no interest in selling it to anyone. ??

    just answer that question, then we can move on to other moronic statements from the city.
