Requesting additional budgetary information and professional opinions from the City Manager.

WHEREAS, in the City Managers proposed 2008-2009 City Budget, the City Manager states, We must either augment current revenues or make adjustments in the provision of services if we are ever to truly get our fiscal house in order; and

WHEREAS, the Council needs appropriate information and alternatives to consider in its budget deliberations; and

WHEREAS, the Councils primary source of professional budget guidance is the City Manager; and
