Councilman Brockhouse: Mayor’s Housing Task Force Costs Overwhelming

Contact: Joseph Lopez

SAN ANTONIO (June 20, 2018) - The following are Councilman Brockhouse’s comments on the recommendations from the Mayor’s Housing Policy Task Force:

 

“I am thankful for the hard work of the Mayor’s Housing Policy Task Force.  They have created a comprehensive plan that will force the Council to address our policies and spending.  Unfortunately, the recommendations represent one of the largest expansions of government in the history of San Antonio.  $20 million in the next budget.  $735 million over 10 years.  19 new City employees. And the list goes on.  The fact is, the City’s own regulations and fees have helped create an environment where housing costs are passed on to residents without any relief.  With this plan, we will only add to our debt and spending.  Instead of reducing costs and taxes, we are presented a plan for more spending and debt and at the end of the day the residents will have to foot the bill.

 

At the core of this proposal is the role of government in San Antonio.  I believe we have to focus on basic city services first.  Public Safety, sidewalks, streets and Code Compliance are the building blocks of neighborhoods.  I will fight every day to ensure this Council focuses on those basics first and learns to be humble with the people’s money.”
