- Prior to reading Ordinance 12-08, here is some commentary from Mayor Georgine Welo regarding the financial status of the City of South Euclid quoted directly from the "approved" city council minutes from March 24, 2008. The entire text of her comments are available on the city website:
"Welo thanked the staff and Finance Director Filippo for their hard work on the budget and working to reduce costs while maintaining services. Welo also thanked City Council and Finance Chair Diane Fistek for their constant support and scrutiny of budget. The City ended 2007 with an unencumbered balance of over $4 million and reported that expenses were under $1 million than budgeted due to the excellent job of watching the bottom line and many sacrifices made by staff.... "
- REALLY....sacrifice in the form of pay raises?
"...Welo stated that the City is launching a marketing and advertising campaign and Real Estate Program managed by Director Benjamin to deal with the foreclosure issues and better promote South Euclid as a great place to live and work. “These are tough times, but South Euclid is shining at this time” stated Welo."
