Make Your Voice Heard on Seattle’s 2011 Budget

The City of Seattle faces a $67 million general fund deficit for 2011, meaning there are some very difficult budget decisions to be made in the months 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.

In advance of this work, the Seattle City Council invites you to participate in this year’s budget process:

  • Visit City Council’s new Ideascale page at Here you can share, comment and vote for ideas on how to balance the budget, with the most essential ideas rising to the top. We are continuously reviewing this feedback and will respond to the most popular ideas.
  • Submit your thoughts about the budget using our online comment form. Emails received will be tallied and shared with each Councilmember to keep them updated on issues important to you.
  • Attend the last meeting in City Hall.

Tuesday, October 26

City Hall Council Chambers, 2nd floor, 600 Fourth Avenue, 98104

5:00 pm sign-in, 5:30 pm Public Hearing
