The Pinole City Council is set to pass a fiscal year 2012-2013 budget Tuesday.
The council also will consider a contingency plan in case the city's Utility User Tax is not renewed beyond its December sunset date.
The 8 percent tax on gas, electric and telephone bills brings just over $2 million a year into the city's general fund. An extension of the tax is expected to be on the Nov. 6 ballot.
The proposal before the council projects a $10.9 million budget assuming voters renew the tax. If they do not, the city would face severe service cuts in the ensuing years.
Tuesday's meeting will begin with a closed session at 5:30 p.m. to deal with several labor, real estate and litigation issues; the open session will begin at 7 p.m. in the Pinole City Council chamber, 2131 Pear St.
