|(Aug. 7, 2018, 8:00 a.m.) -- Mayor Robert Garcia has revised "fiscal impact" statements accompanying August 7 items seeking City Council/Charter Amendment Committee approval to schedule a November 2018 special citywide election on Charter Amendments he wants voters to approve.
In a transmittal letter accompanying the items, revised text now states:
[As of dawn Aug. 7, the transmittal letters accompanying four of the five proposed Charter Amendments have the revised text; one (re the Ethics Commission) doesn't; we believe it's an oversight and have sought clarification from Mayor's Chief of Staff.)
[Scroll down for further.]
The revision comes after LBREPORT.com reported yesterday Aug. 6) that the Fiscal Impact statement originally recited "No Fiscal Impact."
LBREPORT.com had previously reported (June 11) that City Clerk Monique de la Garza estimated the cost of a November special election as $470,000 for one Charter Amendment, and $45,000 each for each additional ballot item.
The fate of the Hotel Workplace ballot measure remains to be seen. It has qualified for potential November 2018 ballot placement via initiative petition signatures, but a Council majority could effectively defer it by requesting a study of its impacts (which would kick the ballot measure into 2020) or simply adopt the initiative's terms immediately.
