Have something to say about the Seattle Parks and Rec budget and its effect on Green Lake Park?  The Seattle Public Library budget and its effect on the Green Lake Library?

Make your voice heard to Seattle City Council and Mayor McGinn at an upcoming public hearing about the 2011 City of Seattle budget.

From the Seattle City Council:

Seattle City Councilmembers will join Mayor McGinn and community organizations for two budget-related public hearings.

Based on preliminary projections, the City of Seattle faces a $50 million general fund deficit for 2011, as a result of continued economic turmoil. In addition, revenues for 2010, are expected to be $10 million less than anticipated. In the face of these shortfalls, the City of Seattle faces some very difficult budget decisions in the coming months. Residents are invited to make their voice heard.

Balancing our city’s budget in tough times requires a great deal of direction, constructive input from citizens and the careful ordering of priorities.

Who:
Seattle City Councilmembers and Mayor McGinn

What:
2011 budget public hearings

The meeting closest to our neck of the woods will be held on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, in the North Seattle Community College cafeteria (9600 College Way N).  Sign-in will be at 5 p.m. and the public hearing will begin at 5:30 p.m.
