6th District Budget Summit to Discuss $3.5 Million Surplus
2013-08-22 · By Editor
The proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year represents a marked departure from the negative budgets of the past. This coming year the City is not confronted with a General Fund deficit, providing an opportunity to replace and reinvest in deteriorating city facilities and infrastructure, as well as much needed City services.
Join Long Beach Councilman Dee Andrews, Assistant City Manager Suzanne Frick, the Director of Financial Management John Gross, and representatives from the Long Beach Departments of Fire, Police, Parks and Public Works to discuss the 2014 City of Long Beach Budget. The 6th District Budget Summit will take place at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, at Ernest S. McBride, Sr. Park, 1550 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, Long Beach, CA.
“With this budget, we are expecting a $3.5 million surplus in FY 14, something we have not seen in the past 10 years. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the Proposed Budget for FY14 and I want to know where you want to see the surplus implemented,” said Councilman Dee Andrews.
What do you think Long Beach should do with the budget surplus? Public comments and suggestions for the FY14 Budget are welcome. Please email or call the Office of Councilman Dee Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org or (562) 570-6816.
