A multi-pronged attack on Fullerton taxpayers’ wallets begins tonight

City staff’s quest for new revenue sources to balance the budget and perhaps fill a few potholes as employee pension costs continue to escalate begins at tonight’s special public meeting of the Transportation & Circulation Commission (the list of commission members is at the bottom of this post).

The heart of  tonight’s presentation is a huge increase in the charge for employee parking permits from $6 per year to $120 per year over a three-year period. See the detailed Transportation and Circulation Commission Staff Report here (pdf).

In the coming months we will be hearing more from staff on other ideas for squeezing more “revenue” out of residents and businesses, including a potential sales tax increase, a possible parcel tax, formation of assessment districts, the sale of city properties, and another possible water rate increase. (See this memo presented to the council last Tuesday by City Manager Ken Domer outlining “alternative financing sources for street reconstruction / improvement projects.”)

Tonight’s meeting will be held in the Council Chambers and it begins at 6:00 pm. It appears that there is no plan to broadcast it or record it, so if you are interested in this issue you should plan to attend.
