Tonight the City Council reviewed the Long Beach Budget Challenge -- an online system that allows residents to review the proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2013 to engage residents in making decisions on how to balance our city's budget.
I recommended that the Council utilize the system developed by Next10.org, a non profit organization which developed the California Budget Challenge.
The online Long Beach Budget Challenge can be accessed at: http://www.longbeach.gov/budgetchallenge/
Go online today and find out what the budget is and give us your input on what decisions need to be made to balance the city's budget. I will keep sending additional information on the budget -- when we will have meetings and how you can become engaged.
