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. Yes. In general, I don’t advocate for increasing just for the sake of increasing—we always just need to be sure that we’re delivering our services in the most efficient way possible.
