San Diego City Council has interesting docket this afternoon. First up will be the vote whether to override Mayor Jerry Sanders’ veto of the fiscal 2009 budget. The disagreement centers on the number of job cuts in the budget. Sanders wants to cut 125 city jobs; council passed a budget that restores 62 of those positions.

Council will then decide whether to grant the mayor’s somewhat last-minute request for $400,000 from the 2008 budget’s reserves. The money would go to Grant Thornton, LLP, the city’s privatization consultants. If council grants the request, it will be doing so against the advice of the City Attorney’s Office.

Check back later this afternoon for details on the council’s votes.
