Mayor Villaraigosa invites you to take the Los Angeles Budget Challenge!

Budget_Deficit_Chart_LeftDeveloped with input from the City’s Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates, this survey gives you the opportunity to share your priorities for balancing the City’s budget.

For the next fiscal year, the City of Los Angeles projects a $216 million budget gap, although that deficit is expected to be about $50 million lower because of adjustments to the required pension contribution.

Over the coming months, Mayor Villaraigosa will review opportunities to build upon recent efforts to improve the City’s fiscal sustainability.

Your participation will assist Mayor Villaraigosa as he prepares the Fiscal Year 2013-14 Budget, which will be released in April 2013.

Responses are due by February 27, 2013.
