City administrators and council members came away from a Friday meeting on next year's budget with some good news and a good many questions.
The good news was that the city appears poised to finish the current fiscal year on budget, with no need for the sort of last-minute cost-cutting there has been in recent years past.
Most of the questions pertained to dealing with a 2012-13 budget shortfall projected at $2.6 million, and how to fund the "dedicated revenue stream" for low-cost housing that Mayor Bill Bell called for in his State of the City address last Monday.
"Something's going to give," said City Manager Tom Bonfield. "We haven't determined (what) yet."
