Comparison of Service Impacts Under Each Budget Scenario

Our overall approach is an attempt to be socially and fiscally responsible while trying to reduce the impact on our most vulnerable residents--especially low-income seniors and
youth. Budget Scenario A assumes that employees do not make contributions; although we do not believe this is likely, this scenario proposes the level of cuts that would be
required if the contributions do not occur. Our preferred scenario--Budget C--requires shared sacrifices: painful reductions in services, reorganization and new collaborations to
maintain or improve services, contributions from all employees and additional temporary revenues from citizens to help us through the recession.
