The San Diego City Council will meet Friday morning at 10 a.m. to discuss City Councilwoman Donna Frye’s proposed ballot measure linking a sales tax increase to a series of cost-cutting reforms.

The decision comes a day after Council President Ben Hueso had scheduled the meeting to start on Monday. Hueso’s spokeswoman gave no explanation for the switch, but City Attorney Jan Goldsmith had pushed for an earlier schedule, saying the complexities of a ballot proposal meant the city had to act quickly.

The city faces an Aug. 6 deadline to put measures on November’s ballot.

Hueso also is scheduling a subsequent meeting for Monday at 9 a.m.

Meantime, Frye appeared on KPBS radio this morning and gave a summary of where her proposal stood.
