Budget Discussion on Davisville Radio

Pothole-stock.jpgOn Sunday, Bill Buchanan hosted the Davis Vanguard‘s David Greenwald on his KDRT radio show, “Davisville.”  We talked about the budget, taxes and how the city’s finances got to this point.

“The city of Davis, facing a $5 million yearly deficit and a backlog of deferred road repairs, has asked voters to boost the city sales tax by a half-cent per dollar starting this summer. Citywide votes on water rates and possibly a new city parcel tax are also in the works this year. On today’s show, Davis Vanguard blogger David Greenwald–who has written extensively about the city’s finances–talks about how the city dug this hole for itself, the options, and where we go from here.”
