    The Administration has gotten rid of a table that for years has allowed people to easily see how much of the spending on each function goes to wages and salaries, pensions, other benefits, debt service, judgments and claims, contracts and other purchases, and how much is funded by city funds vs. federal and state funds.

    The table is no longer in the Budget Summary. I spent some time looking for it in other budget documents and was unable to find it, or the information needed to re-create it the hard way.
