Faced with a large budget shortfall, San Francisco supervisors are proposing a way to deal with the $338 million deficit the city expects next year. Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin wants to draft legislation that eliminates some high-paying city positions. More than 596 city employees earn more than $150,000 per year.
The board is also exploring a mandatory, unpaid furlough for most city employees between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Public health and safety employees would be exempt. According to the controller, that week off would save the city almost $20 million—not nearly enough to balance the budget.
Left out of the proposal is the city’s growing overtime payment problem. Over the last two years, it has paid out more than $128 million in overtime that had not been budgeted.
