Santa Rosa City Council Budget Public Hearings This Week!


The Draft 2015-16 SR Budget (Agenda Item 14.1) will be reviewed by the Council, and comments from the public received, during a public hearing held "no earlier than 5pm, or as soon thereafter as the matters are reached on the agenda."

The Draft Budget contains funding for all of the issues we have been recommending, including community engagement support, homeless and low income housing program expansions, and open government policy implementation.

The hearing will be continued the next morning at 9am, when the Council will consider increasing fees for recreation and park facilities and services.  It will be followed by a discussion and approval of the City's capital improvement program budget.

By the way, Attachments 3 & 4 on the agenda item are detailed responses by staff to the myriad of questions asked by Council members.  It's very good information for budgetphiles.  Talk about open government!
