The Shoreline City Council will hold its regular meeting on Monday, November 1, at 7 pm in the Council Chamber at City Hall, N 175th and Midvale Ave N.

Part of the meeting will include a public hearing for citizens to comment on the proposed 2011 budget. As the results of the election and Shoreline Proposition 1 to raise the property tax lid will not be known until the election is certified at the end of November, the proposed budget assumes that Proposition 1 passed.

If it does not, the council will make deep cuts to services. In a 2005 Community Prioritization Exercise citizen priorities for City services were ranked in four tiers. Tiers #3 and #4, the lower priorities,  included School Resource Officers, Police Storefronts, current planning, community information, neighborhood programs, the Shoreline Pool, Celebrate Shoreline, the Museum, the Arts, and intergovernment participation.

After the public hearing is concluded, the Council will continue to hear reports from City Department heads.

Citizens can comment electronically here by going to the "Click Here to Comment on Agenda Items."
The meeting can be watched live from home computers with the appropriate software.  The budget summary document is available from the Agenda.
