Over the last two years, I have asked the City Council and staff to focus on the reduction of administrative costs and redundancies in order to make government work smarter and be leaner. For example, a typical position has a salary and an additional cost involving pension and health insurance costs. Reducing the number of city employees is a direct financial benefit to the bottom line due to increased use of technology and the talented staff we have.
