Second Public Hearing on General Fund Cuts Scheduled
Hearing to be held on Wednesday, April 22nd at 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers

SEATTLE - Councilmember Jean Godden, Chair of the Finance and Budget Committee, announced today a second public hearing on the Mayors proposed cuts to the 2009 General Fund budget. This hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, April 22nd beginning at 5:30 p.m. in Council chambers at 600 4th Avenue on the 2nd floor.

Citizens will have another opportunity to voice their concerns regarding budget priorities and comment on the Mayors list of proposed cuts to the 2009 General Fund, said Councilmember Jean Godden.

The Council and the Mayor need to hear from those who will be affected by the proposed cuts to the 2009 General Fund, said Councilmember Godden. While no Council action is required, we will be listening to and focusing on citizen priorities in the days ahead.

Comments will help inform councilmembers as they begin to develop a resolution revising 2009 budget priorities as a response to declining tax revenues. The resolution will offer Mayor Nickels guidance on areas of interest to the Council as he works to prepare a revised 2010 budget over the summer. The Council will review and ultimately adopt a revised 2010 budget later this year in November.

    What:  Public Hearing on Proposed Budget Cuts
    When: Wednesday, April 22, 2009 at 5:30 p.m.
    Where: Council Chambers, City Hall, 400 6th Avenue. 2nd floor
