City Reorganization Adopts Chamber Recommendation
As Tacoma continues to grapple with scoping its budget to balance both demanded services and available revenue, the Chamber advocates for common sense approaches to improved management.
The Chamber made an earlier recommendation to reorganize city departments so that ratepayers of storm and sanitary water as well as solid waste were removed from inappropriate cuts. These ratepayers fully fund their utility services and their spending does not impact the general fund.
The City Council was following through on the implementing reorganization as forwarded by City Manager T.C. Broadnax. The Chamber recognized that organizational improvement and commended its adoption by the City Council.
