Downtown Phoenix residents urged to comment on draft City budget, Feb. 16

The city of Phoenix is in the process of preparing its 2010-11 budget, which will include reductions to city programs and services of approximately $140 million.  Residents in and around downtown Phoenix are invited to attend a District 7 community hearing to discuss the proposed budget before final decisions are made.  The meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 16, starting at 6 p.m., at the Burton Barr Central Library, 1221 N. Central Ave.

At the hearing, residents will have an opportunity to comment and make suggestions.  Council members and city staff will answer questions and talk about specific district issues.  This public discussion is among the reasons the city’s budget so closely matches the community’s highest priorities each fiscal year.   Residents can view details of the proposed budget and submit comments at phoenix.gov or by calling 602-262-4800.  After the community’s review, the mayor and City Council will approve a budget-balancing plan on Tuesday, March 2.  The approved plan will take effect April 5.
