Another November, another bleak budget for the city of Wenatchee. News reports quote Mayor Frank Kuntz: “I’m trying to put together a 2014 budget with 2004 revenues. If your costs keep going up and your revenues remain flat, every year you’re going to have to get rid of two or three more people.”

This is sad but true. Kuntz took the executive position of a city whose leaders had spent the previous decade kicking every can they could find as far down the road as they could. The result was not a day of reckoning, but an era of reckoning. It is not yet finished.
