Budget talks resume with health, outsourcing as topics 

The discussion — and possible quarreling — about  Mayor Gavin Newsom’s proposed city and county budget resumes Monday, with 14 agencies scheduled to appear before the Board of Supervisors Budget Committee.

Among the topics that may garner attention are the budget for the health department and security costs for the Asian Art Museum and the Fine Arts Museum.

The latter item — which is referred to as a Proposition J contract in reference to the 1976 law that allows for the contracting out of city services to save money — could save The City nearly $5 million, according to the resolution from the mayor.

The budget battles begin at 10 a.m. on Monday in the Legislative Chamber, Room 250 at City Hall.
