TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Toledo Mayor-elect Mike Collins is going through the proposed 2014 city operating budget, which currently calls for transferring $14.1 million from the capital improvements fund to the general fund to help pay for operations such as police and fire.
"My goal will be not to use that 14.1 million dollars out of the CIP. I might have to use some of it. I don't believe that should be considered ever as a rainy day fund," said Collins.
Collins says every dollar he can keep in the CIP is another dollar which can be earmarked for street repaving and other city infrastructure needs.
"Less money you have the less maintenance you go into reconstruction and resurfacing of streets. Truly we have to move in a different direction," said Collins.
Collins believes the current city structure is top heavy with too many people in supervisor positions, and his plan to down-size will not come at the expense of public safety.
"We have our challenges, but we are going to get there. It'll be a step by step process. We will have a smaller government at the end of 4 years than we have today," said Collins.
Collins will have the first three months of his administration to work with council and iron out a balanced 2014 budget plan.
