How to balance the budget and keep your Lefty goals intact.

SEATTLE — The Seattle City Council is mulling $10 million in cuts to the Seattle Police Department budget to offset decreasing revenue, drawing criticism from the city’s mayor and mayor-elect as contrary to public safety.

Since Durkan proposed her original $7.1 billion budget in September, the city’s projected revenue for 2022 fell by $15 million, as large employers announced they would continue with remote work through early 2022, exempting employees from the city’s JumpStart payroll tax.

I am sure that the city will soon address that oversight and pass some sort of ruling about payroll taxes for remote working. Hell, given the chance, they will also demand you having a license for doing company work outside is property.

  1. Every SINGLE town whether nyc huge or ass end of nowhereville small want to cut police and fire budgets whenever there is budget issues. Every. Single. One. Its the bureaucratic “up yours”- you stingy taxpayers wont let us spend spend spend we will take away “safety”. The cure is lots of town officials having safety issues….. sad predictable typical..

    1. They cut the things they’re SUPPOSED to do — law enforcement, fire fighting, water and sewer — because taking away from the spending they SHOULDN’T do would leave too many supporters unemployed.

      And the taxpayers will vote for more taxes for police or fire LONG before they’ll vote for more taxes for a needle exchange.
