This is just a quick note to remind you to take action on the Lincoln City Budget.
Tomorrow, August 8th, the Lincoln City Council will have a hearing on the Mayor's proposed budget and changes by City Council members. The changes by Council members were done to avoid an increase in the city property tax levy. We urge you to testify at the meeting and remind the City Council that you have been taxed enough already. The hearing starts at 3:00pm.
At the very least, please contact your City Council Members about your thoughts. They want to hear from you.
The official vote on this ordinance is scheduled for Wednesday, August 10th.
LANCASTER COUNTY GOP CONDEMNS BEUTLER’S VETO
(Lincoln, NE) – Yesterday, Mayor Chris Beutler vetoed the recycling ordinance and held a press conference, calling members of the Lincoln City Council shortsighted, non-transparent, and fiscally irresponsible. Yet the Mayor failed to include all of the facts in his press conference.Read more
On Monday, July 25th, the Lincoln City Council had a hearing on Mayor Beutler's new recycling ordinance. (see video below) The LCGOP Executive Committee believes recycling should remain voluntary in Lincoln. We urge you to contact your City Council Members about your thoughts. They want to hear from you. The official vote on this ordinance is scheduled for Monday August 1st.
Here are several things to consider:
Mayor Chris Beutler is declaring that the City of Lincoln has a budget shortfall of $3.3 million dollars. Rather than opening up the dialogue and investigating additional ways to cut spending, the Mayor wants to either cut eight important city programs or inevitably raise taxes.
Please read the following press release from the four Republican City Council members and stand for more budget transparency and dialogue about different ways to reduce spending.
