Speaking in the most dire terms, Fontaine laid out a roadmap for program cuts, departmental consolidations and a supplemental tax bill to fill to gap, but he said that any plan of action must be executed very quickly because the city is fast running out of cash and won’t be able to pay its bills by the end of the month.
