LA City Budget Hearing Schedule

721-budget-buttonx300.gifIt’s budget season. We’ve had one week of budget hearings. City workers have come out to tell city leaders what they think think about the proposed city budget. The City Council’s Budget and Finance Committee is holding a series of Special Meetings to go over the budget in depth. They will discuss each department’s budget with the General Manager and the CAO. They will also allow public comment toward the end of each hearing. If you have something to say, come to the budget hearing on the day they discuss your department. 2013 Budget Hearing Schedule (All hearings are in the City Council’s Chambers on the third floor.)
