Navarre Discusses Fiscal Notes

During its last meeting, the Borough Assembly debated and again postponed action on an ordinance to attach a fiscal note to borough legislation. Borough Mayor Mike Navarre was a guest on KSRM’s “Sound Off” yesterday, to discuss fiscal notes…

 

KPB Mayor Navarre: “You know, it’s not that I don’t embrace the fiscal note concept, or the discussion of the fiscal impact of legislation, I think that that should happen, and in fact, it does happen at the assembly level. What isn’t there right now, is the formalized process of the department preparing a fiscal note, then having it reviewed by the finance department, having it reviewed by the Mayor, and then submitted to the assembly for their consideration. You know, when talk about fiscal notes, I’m more familiar, obviously, with the way it  works in the legislature, and I’ve seen so many games get played in the legislature with fiscal notes.”
