Tacoma Seeks Input for Next Budget

Tacoma residents are invited - we add: and business owners & employees are encouraged -  to participate in the creation of the 2013-2014 Biennial Budget through a series of 10 Community Budget Input Meetings beginning June 25. Attached is the full list of meetings in late June and July in the five City Council Districts across the city.

The purpose of the Community Budget Input Meetings is to help residents understand the City’s budget development process and provide an opportunity to speak with City officials about current and future budget allocations and priorities. Current projections for the City’s General Fund in the 2013-2014 biennium anticipate a budget gap between $60 and $65 million.

Input from residents will be used by City staff to help determine how General Fund dollars will be spent on such services as those provided by police, fire, libraries, street maintenance, social services and support for the arts and cultural programs.

The Community Budget Input Meetings will be hosted by the City Council members representing each of the five Council Districts, and will include a short presentation by City Manager T.C. Broadnax followed by opportunities to interact with City staff and provide feedback on your budget priorities.
