Fife City Administrator Subir Mukerjee walks across Pacific Highway from the Emerald Queen Hotel & Casino in Fife on Aug. 4. The city of Fife is considering how to plug a $1.2 million shortfall in its 2017-2018 budget. Mukerjee credits much of the shortfall to the $850,000 the Puyallup tribe is saying it will not give the city unless it gives the tribe an itemized list of what the money will cover in services to the tribe. The tribe has given the city that amount for the past decade under an agreement the tribe signed with Fife and other local governments in 2004.
