Here’s the FY 2019 Budget for Eastern Market Proposed by the Department of General Services
by Larry Janezich
Eastern Market Community Advisory Committee (EMCAC) is objecting to the flouting the law by Department of General Services in failing to submit the budget to EMCAC for input before presenting it to the City Council.
EMCAC Chair Donna Scheeder told City Council members that the document fails to break down the several sources of income and provides no information about what expenditures are needed for maintenance and capital improvement. Scheeder told the committee that without out having access to current meaningful budget information, EMCAC has no way to advise whether the substantial rent increases for the South Hall merchants proposed by DGS are justified.
