I have not written a new post about the budget shortfalls because I did not know where to begin. This is certainly a mess as everyone knows.
The worst thing we can to now is point fingers at each other. We all need to work together, the Mayor and his entire administration, the city council and every citizen of New Albany. It will take sacrifices on all of our parts may it be higher taxes or fees or forgoing a salary increase, maybe even a salary cut for the higher paid employees as they did in Louisville.
I certainly don't know the answers and I don't know who does. All I know is this "I told you so" which is going back and forth is not helping anyone.
The council will have an emergency budget meeting soon, I wish them all of the luck in the world.
As citizens we can give them our support and quit complaining.
