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.
