The ordinance could have gone to voters this June…but council members had the option of taking up the issue without a public vote.

Opponents like Councilmember Rob Fong were critical of the plan to create an office that’ll have a budget of $500,000 a year…for the next nine-years.
 
“I think we should just put this on the ballot. I know there’s an upfront cost but now more than ever it’s a difficult thing to…it would be hard for me to adopt this and put it into ordinance just because I think the nine years is a pretty big lockdown.”

But supporters said the budget analyst would be well worth the cost…providing council members with expert and objective guidance.
