Perhaps, we in Vallejo can learn from our smaller neighbor and work to limit the influence of special interests on our elections. Recorded from a telephone interview this the audio is unfortunately "telephonic", but the information is very good !   26 minutes

Budget Passed By Council


Pink Slips Set to Fly



By Marc Garman


After a multi-month long decathalon of endurance, Vallejo's City Council finally approved a budget. The deck chairs had been arranged as many times as possible. The inevitable moment arrived. 


While there is a sense of relief, there is certainly no great joy here. Sixteen police officers will be facing layoffs, as well as 5 non-sworn personnel. A total reduction of 26 general fund positions is expected by October 1.   Vallejo will still face a deficit of $550,000 after all the cuts. But only in the best case scenario.


The City may have to contend with additional take-backs from the state.  The state legislature is currently considering keeping 100% of the gasoline tax money Vallejo currently receives.  This, in addition to the likelihood of the UUT (Utility Users Tax) being voted down in November could result in a $7 plus million hole in next year's budget.  If you think this year has been rough, wait until next year.
