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.

"When this administration inherited contracts with no DBE requirement, then we had really limited options," Deputy Mayor Emily Arata said.
...
"The DBE program is about providing disadvantaged businesses with opportunities," Arata said. "Then that business has to perform. Unfortunately, Commander Corp. has underperformed on numerous city jobs."
Among the problems in 2011 alone, Arata said Taylor's firm was slow to respond to heating problems at Alvar Library and left several gas leaks, failed to build a shed properly at Arthur Monday park, and did poor roof and door repairs at the Public Works Maintenance Building.
More recently, True Wall Enterprises, a DBE subcontractor doing masonry work on the Youth Study Center, complained about lack of payments from general contractor The McDonnel Group. McDonnel alleged poor performance and tried to get True Wall to sign over its payments to another firm that would take over the masonry job, and True Wall complained to the Office of Supplier Diversity.
Arata said the city declines to get involved in performance disputes between contractors and their subs, particularly if the decision to remove a DBE subcontractor has no bearing on them meeting overall DBE participation goals. Arata said The McDonnel Group still has seven DBE firms on the project, keeping it on track to meet its 35-percent goal.
