The FIT was a team comprised of community members and Budget Committee members to review proposed budget solutions using a standardized evaluation matrix. The focus of the work was on “fact finding”, with an emphasis on the financial impact of the solutions as they might apply to balancing the FY15 budget.
The FIT's charge was to provide a report to the Budget Committee with their evaluation. FIT information will be used as reference material for the Budget Committee and the City Council during development of the FY15 budget, and to communicate with the public about the issues. The final report was presented at the October 28, 2013 Budget Committee Meeting.
