During the Common Council’s meeting on Tuesday, June 20, the Council adopted file #230261 – a resolution directing all City departments and City-related agencies to investigate methods of generating new revenue for the City. The file was sponsored by Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II, Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, Alderman Lamont Westmoreland, Alderwoman Larresa Taylor, Alderwoman Andrea M. Pratt, Alderman Khalif J. Rainey, and Alderman Mark Chambers, Jr. The resolution further directs each department and agency to present its findings at a meeting of the Steering and Rules Committee to be scheduled at the call of the Chair.

“In the face of financial difficulties, our goal with this file is to ask departments to use their expertise to develop innovative ways to increase revenue that will allow continued financial flexibility in the future. We must continue to work on ways in which we can be creative, more efficient, and proactive with how we generate revenue so we do not have to be reactive down the line, and we look forward to hearing from City departments and other related agencies in the future to discuss any and all ideas,” said the Council members.
