Shoreline City Council Recap for October 2010
October and November are when the City Council reviews and adopts the budget for the coming year. The City Manager transmitted his proposed 2011 budget to the Council on October 18. Starting on October 25, the Council started reviewing the budget and will continue to do so until the final budget is adopted, which is currently scheduled for November 22.

The first of three public hearings on the budget was held November 1. The next two public hearings are scheduled for November 8 and November 15. Citizens are encouraged to provide input at either of the upcoming public hearings. Both meetings are located at City Hall and start at 7:00 pm.
