Public Forum on Wed. at City Hall to Discuss Mayor Nickels' Budget Cuts
There's a public forum scheduled for 5:30 p.m. this Wed. at City Hall to discuss Mayor Greg Nickels' proposed budget cuts.
Facing a worsening recession, Nickels has had to find more $13 million in budget cuts this year. While the 2009 budget cuts are up to the mayor's discretion, next year's budget - already projected to be $40 million short - Nickels will need to work with the City Council on what to cut.
Nickels has said that he will be presenting the City Council with an updated 2010 budget in the Fall.
