Mayor/Council President at Odds Over New Project Funding

A difference of opinion arose between the Mayor and Council President Mixon concerning the possible funding sources for new capital spending projects in the coming years: The Mayor suggested more borrowing or using sales tax revenue by reducing the proposed emergency reserve fund (from $6 to $4 million); but Mixon preferred making cuts elsewhere ("to the bare bones") and using the money saved to fund the needed improvements.
The Mayor was not present but a message from him was relayed by Member Stan Grubin.
