May 16 budget update

  • Safety Net Walking Tour of the Wilson Building, May 18:   Because $2 of every $3 of Mayor Gray's proposed budget cuts target social services, the City Council can change the city's priorities.   The tour is from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm.   Details are here (Word, .doc)
  • Here in PDF is a summary of the May 12 Committee on Health action on the mayor's proposed FY 2012 budget.
  • Fewer than 200 people participated in the Council's FY 2012 budget survey designed to seek input into priorities and ways to achieve savings.   The results are now online.
  • The Committee of the Whole is convening May 16 at 9:30 am for a roundtable to hash out budget issues prior to the first vote May 25.   According to the notice,
    The purpose of this meeting is to allow a presentation of the Council Committees’ recommendations and a discussion on the Council priorities for the proposed Fiscal Year 2012 budget.

    The event will be live streamed on OCT and the City Council website.   The event will also be shown from a room in the Wilson Building since Room 502 is for CMs and staff.

    DCFPI will be Tweeting (@DCFPI) the meeting.   I hope to Tweet, too; you can follow me @susiecambria.

  • The draft report for the Committee on Economic Development mark-up in here in Word (.doc) (65 pages).
  • Jen Budoff, budget director for the City Council, expects the mar-up committee reports to be finished in about one week.   Before the reports are final, Budoff has to sign off on them.   All will be approved at the same time.
  • All mark-up meetings are now available on demand on the OCT website.
