Campground Cuts Loom in San Diego Budget
San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders is expected to begin pushing for next year’s $1.2 billion budget proposal.
The proposal calls for scraping 127 city jobs and hard cuts to libraries, city pools and popular campgrounds, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Overnight visits to Kumeyaay Campground in Mission Trails Regional Park would be a thing of the past, the newspaper reported.
In a budget preview presented by Sanders on April 7, he defended the proposal. “I can’t create magic,” Sanders said. “Here’s the best way I can do this with the amount of money that I have.”
The public will have opportunities to discuss the mayor’s proposal at eight upcoming community meetings, one in each council district. Council members will review the proposal during a series of upcoming budget hearings before voting on whether to approve the budget as proposed or with adjustments.
