How to Make Your City Better? Start with the City Budget!

The City of LA sets an annual budget funds everything from sidewalk repairs to libraries, from parks to parking. Mayor Eric Garcetti released his proposed budget for the next fiscal year.

On Tuesday, April 16th, Investing in Place held a City of Los Angeles Budget 101 webinar the day before the Mayor’s budget dropped and we explained the City of Los Angeles’ budget process and how you can get involved (presentation and presentation script)! We covered:

  • Power of budget advocacy
  • City budget process & timeline
  • How to review a budget
  • Lessons from the past
  • Engagement this year & next
