2010_09_09_seal.jpg With City Hall all a-whirl with this week's news, there's still actual business to take care of, one of those items of business being the City's 2011 budget and the growing deficit. Starting tonight and continuing through next week, there will be three separate public hearings at which The Office of Budget and Management and members of the City Council's Budget Committee will hear present Mayor Daley's preliminary budget for next year - which includes that $650 million gap - that the next mayor will get to inherit. And you will have a chance to present feedback; that is, after all, the point of these hearings is to get your feelings on them so let them hear you, loud and clear. The meetings are:

  • Tonight, September 9, 2010, South Shore Cultural Center, 7059 S. South Shore Drive
  • Friday, September 10, 2010, Westinghouse College Prep., 3223 W. Franklin Blvd.
  • Thursday, September 16, 2010, North-Grand High School, 4338 W. Wabansia Ave.
