September 28th, 2010 · Comments

The Seattle City Council is holding a public hearing on the mayor’s proposed budget at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Northgate Community Center Gym, 10510 5th Ave. NE. Sign-in to speak begins at 5 p.m.

Mayor Mike McGinn presented his proposed 2011-2012 budget Monday afternoon. It includes a number of cuts to make up a $67 million general fund deficit. Cuts that will be felt in our neighborhood include the proposed closure of the Greenwood Neighborhood Service Center, and the continued closure of the Sandel Park wading pool.

PhinneyWood will have a full report after the meeting.

The city will hold two more public hearings on the budget:

  • At 5:30 p.m., Wed., Oct. 13, The Brockey Center at South Seattle Community College, 6000 16th Ave. SW
  • At 5:30 p.m, Tues., Oct. 26, Seattle City Hall, Council Chambers, 2nd floor, 600 4th Ave.
