Binding Arbitration on the Chopping Block ?

By Marc Garman

6/5/09



This Wednesday at 7PM the metal is expected to hit the meat. The members of Vallejo's Charter Review Committee are expected to vote on charter section 809: Binding Arbitration.


Chairman Mark Fox made his views clear at the last meeting when he described 809 as “f****d up” and “designed to fail the people”. VIDEO


Fox, who works as an Assistant City Manager in Pittsburg CA, but lives in Vallejo, is no stranger to the workings of government or to labor negotiations. He is a man who carefully chooses his words with an evident care, restraint and precision. This makes his passionate condemnation of Vallejo City Charter section 809 all the more resounding.

League of California Cities Launches www.SaveYourCity.net to Showcase How a

State Raid of Local Property Taxes Would Harm California Communities  

Contact: Eva Spiegel, (916) 658-8228          Cell, (530) 400-9068 

 

SACRAMENTO — The League of California Cities today is launching www.SaveYourCity.net as a unique and innovative platform for mayors, city council members and concerned members of the public to tell policy makers how communities will be devastated if the state forces cities to bail the state out of its budget deficit. Anyone can register on the site and submit a video. Each video uploaded to www.SaveYourCity.net will automatically be sent to the Governor and the legislators of the person who submitted the video. More than 200 city officials, business and community leaders and the public have already submitted video testimony to lawmakers and the Governor.  


Since 1991, state officials have taken over $10 billion in local property taxes to meet state obligations, costing cities over $900 million each year. Now state officials are considering forcing local governments to “loan” the state $2 billion in local property tax revenues to help close the state’s budget deficit. This type of borrowing binge to fund today’s budget is part of what got California into its budget mess in the first place. It needs to be stopped if we ever hope to have a responsible budget.
