Ordinance 200598 passes, 7-5. This ordinance amends Chapter 50, Code of Ordinances, entitled “Offenses and Miscellaneous Provisions” by enacting one new Section 50-175 prohibiting the malicious publication of personally identifying information of a person with the intent to threaten or stalk a person, a person’s immediate family, or a person’s domestic partner.
Ordinance 200572 passes, 11-1. This ordinance reduces appropriations in various funds for Fiscal Year 2020-21 due to the unprecedented economic impacts of the COVID-19 recession on the City’s finances; authorizing the use of reserves; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date. Budgets will be cut 4.5% across all city departments—police and fire cuts are limited to 2.25%. The cuts will save $23.6 million. Additionally, the city will stop cutting grass in rural areas and will reduce cutting in parks and along boulevards. Two million will be cut from Neighborhoods and Housing Services, though recycling will not be affected.
