The nation's financial woes also didn't get any rosier with its 3rd-largest automaker filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection yesterday. However, this may prove to be a opportunity for Chrysler, which is pinning its future on a top-to-bottom reorganization and plans to build cleaner cars through an alliance with Italian automaker Fiat. Simiarly, opportunities for the City can be afforded...but a clear picture of the City's current financials is needed first. A two-year budget is scheduled to be adopted in May, with a City Council Budget Workshop taking place this Sunday, May 3rd, in the conference room at City Hall - 50 Park Place. The call to order will be at 9:00am, where an overview of the revenues, expenditures, and long-term projections will be presented. Budget Workshops continue the next night on Monday, May 4th, at 7:30pm with a number of departments (City Attorney, Police, Public Works, Marina & Aquatic Services, and Parks & Recreation) presenting their budgets, which include a 5% decrease in supplies and services. Fire, Community Development, Administrative Services, City Council, City Management, and City Clerk will present their budgets the following week, on May 11th (with also a 7:30pm meeting start time).
Lastly, the Housing Leadership Council of San Mateo County will be hosting a Housing Resource Fair next Saturday, May 9th, at Westmoor High School in Daly City. Learn more about the event and RSVP by clicking here.
