City Councilman Morris Madrid is accusing the city administration of defying a clear council directive.
When the City Council approved the annual budget on Oct. 1, it also required that the city staff present a budget adjustment request to restore lost funding to the Police and Fire departments. The deadline to get it done was by the very next meeting.
That directive is clearly reflected in the council’s meeting minutes.
But four meetings later, City Manager Sharon Caballero has yet to present such a request to the council.
