If that’s the way they play, I understand that, that’s what we’ll do.”He added: “If you take a manager’s job, you’re under pressure from day one and these days you don’t get time to implement things. You have to be instant, that’s the way it is.”You can’t think you’re going to get two or three years to change things round, you have to work with what you’ve got and try to find a few results.”You don’t get the time anymore – it’s the same with all managers.

  • Mayor Kevin Faulconer unveils new 38 billion budget

Chief of police David Nisleit said the increase in compensation will give officers a 25 percent pay hike.“Prior to this compensation, we were at the very bottom, when you did a study of the region. With this competitive pay package over the next two years, it’s going to bring us into the top third. That makes us competitive,” Nisleit said.To find housing for those who are now living on the street, the Mayor proposed spending close to 8 million dollars on programs and services, which will include money for the three large bridge shelters.Bob McElroy, whose organization, Alpha Project runs one of those bridge tents said it’s essential to have a stable source of funding.The spending plan also puts money into other city initiatives, including $4 million for “Clean SD,” a program to clean up neighborhoods and the San Diego River.$121 million is allocated for “Pure Water San Diego,” a program that turns wastewater into drinking water.This year, there is little talk of a budget ax. One city official likened the budget-cutting process to the use of a scalpel, saying reductions were made strategically across various city departments.According to the Mayor’s director of finance, Jessica Lawrence, “We ensured that we weren’t hitting core services, so, within all the mayoral departments, we were able to really take a scalpel approach.” last_img read more
