We have to pass this bill without reading it. Remember that line from Pelosi. It seems to work in Reno also.

I agree with the previous comments but maybe some burden should fall on the unions. If there pay & benefit structure is so complicated let them finance the extra cost. This reminds me of health care admin costs. Providers spend so much on paperwork that patient care can suffer or they just give up & retire because it costs too much to get oaid.

If the contract provided terms for additional or unforseen costs, which it should address, then "informed" council members would,t be wandering around with dazed looks and no answers. Remember the parking meters?? And the bus terminals//

Have you seen the contract? Did you ever think that just maybe there is a provision in said contract to account for additional costs? Without of the facts opinions are useless.

It appears that ADP didn't exercise due diligence in researching the paroll system. The union contracts had to have been available for ADP to reference while designing the system. Don't knuckle under, City of Reno.

A contract is two parties agreeing to a set of terms, usually one party providing something and the other party paying for it. If one party later finds it can't or doesn't want to perform its obligation, it has no right to demand a change in the terms of its obligation. If the City Council wants to relinquish its position in this contract, it should pay the bill from its own pockets, not ours. It's always too easy to be a hand-wringing bed-wetter when you're spending other peoples money. Don't give in with my money; be prepared to pay the bill yourselves. Remember, you made the deal in the first place; surrendering now woild be admitting incompetence on your part.
