The mayor plans to refinance to save $200 million. She hopes this will help shrink the budget gap of $838 million projected for 2020.

The mayor’s office said she will not pursue “one time solution” pension obligation bonds right now. Instead, opting for general obligation bonds and sale tax secularization bonds, which the city compares to refinancing a mortgage.

Among some controversial items on the agenda, Lightfoot is proposing rideshare tax for services like Uber and Lyft, in the hopes of cutting down on traffic congestion downtown.

She will also talk about hiking up restaurant tax and parking meter rates.

The mayor said Tuesday, the decisions weren’t easy.
