Pasadenans Invited to Give Input on Potential Impacts to City Services
Oct.12.2010 06.30PM


The Pasadena City Council adopted an operating budget in June for the current fiscal year but there is still work to do.

  • What are the most important priorities for Pasadena?
  • What levels of service at libraries, community centers, parks and fire stations are acceptable?
  • Should fewer employees be providing these services?

Pasadena residents, business owners and other stakeholders are invited to provide input on these and other budget-related issues during a series of interactive community workshops.

The first, on Tuesday, Oct. 12, will be hosted by Councilwoman Jacque Robinson and Councilman Chris Holden, representing Districts 1 and 3, respectively. This meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at La Pintoresca Branch Library, 1355 N. Raymond Avenue.

Subsequent workshops are scheduled as follows:

  • Wednesday, Oct. 13, at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at Wilson Middle School, 300 Madre St., hosted by Councilmen Steve Haderlein and Terry Tornek, representing Districts 4 and 7;
  • Thursday, Oct. 21, at 6:30 p.m. at Santa Catalina Branch Library, 999 E. Washington Blvd., hosted by Councilwoman Margaret McAustin and Vice Mayor Victor Gordo, representing Districts 2 and 5;
  • Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 6:30 p.m. in the Crawford Family Forum at Southern California Public Radio, 474 S. Raymond Ave., hosted by Councilmen Steve Madison and Terry Tornek, representing Districts 6 and 7.

For geographic purposes, District 7 residents have two opportunities to attend a workshop and are invited to choose the one that is most convenient.

During the workshops the community will receive an overview of the top ten direct-service programs financed by the General Fund and will be asked to provide input on service levels in light of the city's critical budget challenges.
