City Memo Responds to City Controller's Questions About Implementation of Proposition B

April 17, 2019 -- City Attorney Ron Lewis and Finance Director Tantri Emo responded in a 2-page memo today to recent questions from City Controller Chris Brown about the city's implementation of a 29 percent pay increase for firefighters as required by Proposition B, which came with no funding source.

In addition the memo outlines flaws in the proposition's language. For example, "Prop B fails to specify how implementation should be achieved."
