Gilbert budget proposal provokes council debate

By Cecilia Chan | Gilbert Sun News

Gilbert is looking at a proposed $988-million spending plan that includes 46 new hires for the upcoming fiscal year that begins July 1.

The proposed positions, which include 19 positions for police, eight for fire and six for parks, would cost taxpayers $6.2 million.

“The largest ongoing increases are the FTEs,” said Councilwoman Amy Yentes, a proponent of limited government, at last Tuesday’s study session. “We lost 330,000 jobs in Arizona during COVID. Last year we hired 80 employees or so as budgeted.”
