The City of West Hollywood will host a “Budget Fair” on Wednesday from 5 to 8 p.m., at Plummer Park. The event is free and open to the public. The Budget Fair is part of preparation of the City’s two-year operating budget and five-year capital work plan. The operating budget will cover two fiscal years; it will begin on July 1 and will run through June 30, 2016. The five-year capital work plan will also be updated through June 30, 2019. There are five key themes in this budget-planning cycle: Technology, Arts, Human Services/Homelessness, Community Engagement, and new Eastside residents. The Budget Fair will feature two distinct areas to provide information to community members about budget information and city divisions. One room will offer a short informative video presentation about the city budget with background, facts, and figures. A second room will incorporate booths with representatives from a variety of city divisions. Community members will be able to learn, by division, about the city’s accomplishments and proposed work plans. Attendees will have an opportunity to provide input regarding work plans. The city has also launched a short online budget survey to engage residents, businesses, and community members in West Hollywood in providing feedback about budget priorities. The survey takes less than five minutes to complete and is available at www.weho.org/budgetsurvey.
