Could the power brokers behind El Paso’s city government have arranged for the City Manager’s $61,000 a year raise?
According to this July 30th story from KVIA:
City Manager Tommy Gonzalez believes it would be too expensive to complete all of the quality of life bond projects in under a decade.
. . .
The city initially wanted to finish construction in under 10 years, but Gonzalez said it would put too much pressure on taxpayers.
. . .
Gonzalez said the city has to be realistic about the time it will take to finish the projects. “Looks more like a 15 to 16 year schedule,” he said.
According to Gonzalez, property taxes would increase “too much and too fast” if the city tries to finish the projects in 10 years.
Will a $61,000 a year raise make Mr. Gonzalez change his mind? Stay tuned.
