Deputy Mayor Emily Arata says city leaders are putting together a package of budget cuts, City Hall organizational changes and new revenues. Normally, this work could wait until budget hearings in the fall, but there's a July 24 deadline for the City Council to adopt specific requests for tax increases on the December ballot.

"I think right now there's some uncertainty in the budget," Arata said. "We've got the outstanding question of how much the sheriff's consent decree will cost. What will the cost be of firefighters' pension? But certainly, no one wants to see services cut at the library.
"As we're putting this package together, we're supportive of a sustainable funding stream for the library," Arata added.
Arata said New Orleans is the only municipality in the state that must get approval from voters statewide just to get the right to vote on a police and fire tax increase.
Arata said they have already cut $100 million in spending, but the administration and the council are trying to find more places to cut to reduce the amount of new taxes they will have to request in December.
