ACLC warns GRU Authority action could force city to cut services


The Alachua County Labor Coalition held a press conference Tuesday to raise an alarm about a looming Gainesville Regional Utility Authority board action that could result in numerous city services losing funding.

The GRU Authority is set to discuss and take action at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday related to the government services contribution (GSC) — a pot of money given to the city’s general budget from the utility each year.

The GSC was decreased by 55.4% for fiscal year 2024, a reduction of $19 million, to help pay down some of the $315 million of GRU debt. The change forced the city to raise taxes, cut over 100 jobs and increase utility rates for next year.
