The city budget

The city appears to have very reasonably arrived at a balanced budget for the coming year.

However, if the city does not work out an agreement with its municipal employees on personal health insurance, there will be no way for the city to make up the difference between the money it has and the money it will need to fund the health insurance in the years to come.

This is the one line item of millions upon millions in increases which is runaway and altogether impossible to sustain into the future.

The sooner everyone gets around the table and discusses options, the sooner this problem will be resolved.
