Proposed FY 2018 Budget by the numbers for Dist.1, hearing, 8-22

It is budget season once again. The proposed General Fund budget equals $1.19 billion, and contains plenty of items that will help our community.

Going forward into fiscal year 2018, CoSA and the City Council have prioritized taking more equitable approach to the distribution of budget resources across districts. For example, several districts (including District 1) will likely receive more funds to address streets with the lowest average pavement scores. 

I welcome your feedback and look forward to advocating for District 1 neighborhoods throughout the budget process. As a reminder, the District 1 Budget Open House will take place tonight at 5:30 pm at the Central Library. I hope to see you there!   

If you cannot make it, I have put together a colorful guide which explains some of the proposed items by topic (e.g. public safety, innovation, infrastructure, etc.). Please contact me at (210) 207-0900 with any questions or suggestions
