Supes Punt MTA Budget Imbroglio To Special Meeting Next Wednesday
|Oh, they're dragging this out...|
The only element missing in this cliff-hanger is suspense over who's going off the cliff: It's the folks who ride Muni. Even if Avalos and pals manage to stave off the worst of it, this is a putrid budget for all parties; the supes' efforts are less akin to emergency room doctors attempting to resuscitate a wounded patient than morticians hoping to prettify a corpse.
Finally, it warrants mentioning that the Memorandum of Understanding that would detail for what, exactly, the SFPD is billing Muni all those millions was promised within 24 hours -- 168 hours ago. MTA spokesman Judson True says his agency and the police department are hoping to produce it in "the coming weeks." When asked about the delay, he noted that "it's a back and forth process between the agencies."
What isn't in this city?
