SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Mayor London Breed on Friday announced the proposed budget for San Francisco over the next two years.
Mayor Breed said the budget will close the city’s projected $1.5 billion two-year shortfall to preserve jobs, and that it “minimally impacts services.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Included in the budget is a major cut to San Francisco law enforcement, including both police and sheriff’s department.
Breed set out to close a deficit of more than $1.5 billion in the proposal, after the local economy was stunted by the coronavirus, the San Fransisco Examiner reported.
According to the proposal, $120 million may be redirected from law enforcement agencies to the Black community.
Breed said, “With this budget, we are listening to the community and prioritizing investments in the African American community around housing, mental health and wellness, workforce development, economic justice, education, advocacy and accountability.”
The budget would provide “a slight increase of .2 percent in the city workforce for a total of 31,853 employees,” the SF Examiner reports. “But Breed’s budget assumes that current city workers will agree to defer their scheduled wage hikes for the next two years to save $270 million.”
