Council has passed 2 resolutions supporting an annual increase of about 2-3% for social service contracts in order to ensure that service agencies can keep up with rising costs of doing business and maintain service capacity. Would you direct the City Manager to include this annual increase in the budget for contracts meeting their performance targets? (Y/N/Explain)

Yes. As a council aide, I have helped draft at least one of those resolutions, so I am very much supportive of ensuring our community partners are able to maintain their base levels of service from year to year.
