Erik Bruvold, who heads up the Institute for Policy Research now associated with National University...wants to hear from the mayor “a sustainable and realistic plan for how to close a $100 million to $200 million deficit. I really don’t want to hear that much about grand civic plans or investments.”
With the level of sacrifice expected in the city’s coming fiscal budget, Bruvold said it is “critical” for the mayor to “begin the process of laying out just how bad it could be and what we need to do to close the gap.”
