Mayor Tom Potter has just sent a letter to all four City Commissioners and the City Auditor detailing six additional expenditures he will be able to fund in the budget.
Included among them is $100,000 for the Bicycle Master Plan Update process. Here’s an excerpt from the letter:
“OMF (Office of Management & Finance) has advised me of $2 million in additional revenue in FY 2006-07 from higher than expected business license receipts. These funds were received and reported following the April 15 business tax filing deadline. This well result in $2 million in additional one-time funds for FY 2007-08. The timing of this good news fits well with the budget approval on May 16.
So there you have it folks, let the Bike Master Planning continue! Thank you to everyone who took time to write the Mayor and share your thoughts about this.
