Supes resume budget ‘efficiency’ hearings 

City departments have come up with what are called “efficiency” plans, strategies they are considering to use to try and close The City’s $522 million budget deficit. The departments are being brought before the Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee to discuss what those measures are.

Those who have already come before the committee, which is chaired by Supervisor John Avalos, have come up with some interesting ideas. The Police Chief George Gascon told the committee that it is working on a plan to invite police officers of retirement age to quit and be rehired as part timers, and the Department of Public Works director Ed Reiskin spoke about imposing additional litter fees, to name a few.

On Wednesday, the board’s Budget and Finance Committee will hold more hearings on departments’ "efficiency” plans, including the one drafted by the Public Health Department.
