City budget podcast: It could be worse

Rudy Bush, the city hall reporter for The Morning News, Rick Wamre and I discuss what comes next when the city council begins its budget deliberations in the next couple of works. Rudy doesn’t expect a property tax hike, which made me happy. We also wondered how happy the cops will be with taking comp time instead of overtime, worried about the city’s accumulating bond debt and interest payments, and tried to guess if and when the budget crisis will end.

The podcast is about 18 minutes long and 17 megabytes. To download or stream it, click here.
