I was informed that the most significant decreases in the reserve occurred under City Manager Mike Mahaney not Burgess Hanson. And, the things that have further decreased the reserve are that the BSO Fire and Police have over a 3 million dollar increase this year and the fire pension recalculation (because people are living longer now the pensions will pay out longer and the pension funding had to be readjusted to reflect that) cost the city about 1.5 million. None of which could have been predicted but had to be funded.
