Seattle City Council adopts 2012-2013 budget
Council balance package of cuts with preserving essential services

SEATTLE Councilmember Jean Godden who serves as the Budget committee chair released the following statement today on the City's 2012-2013 approved budget:

"Seattle City Councilmembers focused on maintaining critical city services while pursuing cuts to provide the leanest city government possible in the face of another year of federal and state economic woes.

"On behalf of the City Council, I want to share our sincere gratitude to all Seattleites for their important contributions to this budget process, as well as all the hard working city employees whom we continue to ask to do more with less.

"We know we have a long road ahead as we await further cuts from the state legislature and federal government. However, we will remain steadfast to our commitment to the most vulnerable in our City."

2012 City Council Budget Highlights
