At yesterday's Financial Committee meeting (May 17th), some Committee members complained they weren't getting an accurate enough picture of city finances from the Mayor's Office--or from his Department Heads--on which to base their financial decisions in the best interest of the city.
Member Kingrea: ". . . its absolutely outrageous, what I just heard . . . all we're asking for is the unvarnished truth."
Member Kingrea: "If we don't get it . . . (we) need to do whatever we need to do."
Member Stankoski: "If that's a motion, I'll second it."
Some Dept. Heads/employees reportedly fear "retribution" by the Mayor.
