Tony O’Rourke Meets with City Council about City Plans
Yakima City Manager Tony O'Rourke told council members Tuesday that things in Yakima need to change over the next four years or the city could see deficits of between 1.5 to 4 million dollars. O'Rourke says he has a plan to reorganize the city that he hopes the city will embrace. He told council members during a study session at City Hall today doing nothing isn’t an option.
O'Rourke says his plan doesn't include any layoffs, however he says with belt tightening comes more work. Council members embraced O'Rourke plan today saying they look forward to hearing more on Aug. 21.
