Budget Process Frustrating Some

The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center is speaking out on the process of constructing the city budget.

The center’s Gianna Rendon says since a majority of the city’s population is working class, lower income Hispanics, they should have more opportunity to offer input on how their tax dollars are spent.

City Coucilman Rey Saldana agrees. He says sometimes council will try new ways to gather input from citizens and they don’t always work. So he’s counting on groups like Esperanza to help them decide where and when public meetings are held.
