Want to give the Mayor input on the budget?


Posted by Bel Air Beverly Crest Neighborhood Council | Posted in Neighborhood Council | Posted on 27-01-2011

Los Angeles is currently planning its 2011-12 budget and this year may be the most challenging ever for the city’s finances.  The city needs and wants your input, so Mayor Villaraigosa invites you to take the Los Angeles Budget Challenge, which will be launched today, January 27th, 2011.

The Los Angeles Budget Challenge is online and is a very interactive tool that will let you help solve the City’s budget deficit.   You will be able to share your concerns about potential budget balancing measures and priorities. Your responses will help the Mayor make the difficult decisions necessary to continue to move Los Angeles towards better financial health, while protecting our City’s most essential services.

 The official link to the Los Angeles Budget Survey Challenge is: LABudgetChallenge.lacity.org  

 The Los Angeles Budget Survey Challenge goes LIVE today at 5:00pm, and runs through February 27th.

 Please take the survey challenge, and help get the word out that this survey is one of only and very best ways for your voice to be heard directly by City Hall. 

Thank you and Let The Challenge Begin!!!
