Budget Public Hearings in October

Home » Budget Public Hearings in October

2014 budget bannerOctober means it's city budget time. The City Council will hold two public hearings this month to receive comments and concerns about the proposed 2014 City budget.

The Council received the Mayor’s 2014 budget proposal last week and we have begun our review. Councilmembers will spend the next two months pouring over the proposal and making any changes necessary to meet the needs of Seattle residents in areas such as public safety, education, transportation and affordability. 

The first hearing is this Thursday, October 3 at City Hall (600 Fourth Avenue). Sign-up for public comment opens at 5 p.m. and the hearing will start at 5:30 p.m.

The second hearing will be on Thursday, October 24 in the Garfield High School Commons (400 23rd Ave). Sign-up for public comment at this hearing opens at 5 p.m. and the hearing will start at 6 p.m.

If you don't want to show up in person, you can also tune in through the Seattle Channel. More information about the budget process is available on this page or through this two-page handout
