June is busting out all over and so is the City budget

City of San Diego squareThe City of San Diego budget is the big news at City Hall in early June and should be in University City, especially for library lovers. Council President Sherri Lighner has asked Council members to consider a 4% budget for the library.

Remember the pain we University City folks went through in 2008 when then Mayor Sanders decided to save money by closing branch libraries? U.C. rallied against this proposal and got the mayor’s attention.

Email Mayor Faulconer today and remind him that the library is the heart beat of a community and while the library budget used to be 6% of City budget, our current mayor should support the 4% figure.

As a matter of fact, write each of the City Council members, including Sherri Lightner.  Be proactive for our libraries or we will end up being reactive, a lot harder.

Editor’s note: In addition to Library funding, other budget items may also be of interest to University City. Residents are urged to contact the mayor and Council members about these budget items as well.

  • Communications (911 call center)
  • Development Services (code enforcement)
  • Police (officers and dispatchers)
  • Fire-Rescue (expansion of Fire academy)
  • Park and Recreation
  • Public Works
  • Transportation & Storm Water
