Budget process will have new shape as citizens vote for reform

The budgeting process for The City will take on a new look.

The bleak economic forecast for The City prompted officials to place Proposition A, the “budget reform” measure, on the November ballot.

The measure does three main things: creates a two-year budgeting process, requires city officials to draft a five-year financial plan and ensures all labor contracts are submitted for approval at a specific time.

The measure was part of a collaborative effort between Mayor Gavin Newsom and members of the Board of Supervisors.
