This web site is a cute idea, but it doesn't show enough detail to do anything useful. Some places I would start reducing the budget would be:
The above list is a start. There is plenty of additional room for change.
I like a lot of these ideas. It's going to take creative solutions that involve all the stakeholders. We don't trust each other and so everyone keeps their cards in their hands instead of laying them on the table. This backseatbudgeter is a good idea, but too limited. Denver Post Editorial Page keeps trying to engage the public also. They've done some good work in this area of trying to put forward different options. I don't agree with their proposals, but I do agree with getting all the stakeholders to compromise. Don's post above has some ideas with merit. I wish some of these options were in backseat budgeter. I see too many that refuse to listen to creative solutions.
