Abstract

"City" piece on a possible revenue shortfall of almost $12 million in the Portland city budget for the year beginning July 1. The gap could lead to such cost-saving measures as selling off some city property and privatizing municipal services, or it could mean a huge property tax increase. According to Jay Hibbard, chair of the city council's finance committee, the deficit is due to rising health-care costs, increased salaries, declining state aid for schools, extra cash for the county and unpaid liabilities in the pension system.
