Seattle City Council seeks resident feedback at budget public hearings


Seattle – The City of Seattle faces a general fund deficit for 2011, meaning there are some very difficult decisions to be made in the weeks to come.  As the City Council works to balance the Seattle's 2011-2012 budget, considerable input from residents is needed to develop a budget that best reflects the needs of our city.


The Seattle City Council invites you to participate in this year's budget process by attending one of the two upcoming public hearings held in South or Central Seattle:



Wednesday, October 13

The Brockey Center at South Seattle Community College

6000 16th Avenue SW, 98106

5:30 p.m. Public Hearing (5 p.m. Sign-in)


**We will have Mandarin and American Sign Language interpreters available at the Oct. 13 budget hearing.


Tuesday, October 26

Seattle City Hall

Council Chambers, 2nd floor

600 Fourth Avenue, 98104

5:30 p.m. Public Hearing (5 p.m. Sign-in)



Budget documents are translated into Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean, Somali, Spanish, and Tagalog and are available online at   If you are planning on attending one of our budget hearings and need interpretation assistance, please call 206-684-8888.
