In a time when municipalities are analyzing every dime spent, the City of Rohnert Park will decide tonight on whether or not to spend $200,000 on consultants.
The consultants would include $150,000 to an Oakland firm to study voter support for a tax measure for Nov. 2010, $44,000 to study the city’s water and sewage rates and $20,000 to $25,000 to hire a recruiter for a new City Manager, according to a Press Democrat report.
The city has made $4.5 million in cuts to this year’s budget.
Lew Edwards Group of Oakland has been recommended by Interim City Manager Dan Schwarz to study the tax measure.
Vice Mayor Gina Belforte said could add $2.2 million in revenue to the city each year, as reported by the Press Democrat.
