Where is PBOT's paving budget in the above list? Seems like there is a big chunk of PBOT budget missing in the above table.
I'm guessing the "Excluded Targets" represents projects that are exempt from the 10% haircut exercise. Is that entirely paving budget? If so, does that represent an increase from previous FY?
If paving is as important as Hales' advocates he should let it fight the fair fight in the add-back package, instead of being protected. There are many programs that are arguably as important as paving included in the cut list.
Then again maybe paving isn't consider a discretionary item... being funded with gas tax. If so, does anyone know how the budgeting process is occurring for paving and other non-general fund budget items?
