Consolidated Budget Motion

 

 (Motion 1)

The KPFA Local Station Board supports the efforts of KPFA management to create a budget that is balanced, realistic, and minimizes staff cuts and disruptions to the operations of KPFA.

The KPFA LSB approves the local management version of KPFA's budget as the best version to work from moving forward.

---------------------------------------

The KPFA LSB calls on Pacifica National to permit the following measures to further reduce the level of budgeted staff cuts, and to minimize disruption of station operations:

(Motion 2)

  • Spread out repayment of the money KPFA owes Pacifica National over three years - for a savings of roughly 1.25 FTEs

(Motion 3)

  • Suspend KPFA's payments to replenish the national Heath Endowment fund - for the savings of roughly 0.5 FTEs

(Motion 4)

  • Reduce KPFA's Central Service Assessment by one percentage point to 18.5 in exchange for KPFA housing the Pacifica National Office, for a savings of roughly 0.5 FTEs.

(Motion 5)

  • Suspend all in-person meetings of the Pacifica National Board, and return 1/5 of the of the savings to each of the five Pacifica stations, for a savings of roughly 0.4 FTEs.

The KPFA LSB further calls on its representatives on the Pacifica National Board to propose, and vote in support of, the measures listed above.
