Seventh District Community Budget Workshop

Release Date: 2014-09-04

Dear neighbors,

You are invited to join Long Beach City Manager Pat West and the Office of Mayor Robert Garcia to discuss how the recently adopted Fiscal Year 2015 budget will affect our Seventh District neighborhoods. The $401 million FY2015 budget ensures Police, Fire, Public Works, Parks, Libraries and all other ma  jor services are preserved.

My priorities for the 7th District are focused toward enhancing public safety, economic development and youth/education programs. Here are highlights of the FY2015 budget:
 
•Police and Fire – 70% of the General Fund is allocated to Public Safety with $2.2 million in enhanced revenue over time for gang prevention and other efforts; 
•Development Services – A Historical Preservation Planner and a Saturday “call-in” Code Enforcement Officer to deter illegal construction; and 
•Library Services – Strategic Investment of $2.1 million to complete funding
the North Library with $48,650 to upgrade outdated phones in 10 branches to enhance VOIP and network equipment.

City Staff from Police, Fire, Library, Public Works, Development Services and Parks, Recreation & Marine will be on hand to take your questions and address any concerns.
