November 12th, 2010

This year the City’s economy was still deep in recession and as a result we had to reduce this year’s $900 million budget by $15 million before the year was over. In addition, we faced a $67 million budget shortfall for 2011. And just last week we received additional bad news: with the passage of State Initiative 1107 and the continued decline in property sales we had to take another $5.8 million dollar reduction from the Mayor’s proposed 2011-2 budget.


Urban Politics #300: MOHAI & The City Budget

September 27th, 2010

Today, the Council arrived at a compromise on the City’s agreement with The Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) on its move to the Armory at South Lake Union. The compromise provides the City an additional $8.5 million next year to help soften the blow to human services and other budget areas in 2011 & 2012. Rather than a loan, the parties have agreeed to restructure the timing of money flowing from the State through the City to MOHAI.
