Not happy with the 2009 budget cuts that the City Council has no control over? Let them know at a public hearing in Council chambers at 5:30 PM next Wednesday (April 22). Budget Committee Chair Jean Godden just sent out a press release announcing the hearing. Says Godden, "While no Council action is required, we will be listening to and focusing on citizen priorities in the days ahead."
To be fair, the Council will also be looking for input for the 2010 budget, and will also likely submit a resolution attempting to guide the Mayor in his cuts on the 2009 version. So if you've got a project you don't want to see on the wrong side of the blade, you might want to show up for the 5:30 meeting. You'll have to hurry, though, if you want to make the 6:30 Not Evil, Just Wrong showing at Rachel Carson Elementary.
