Your feedback is wanted on budget cuts

More money troubles are in store for the city of Lynnwood. Officials are looking for ways to cut another $5.26 million from the current budget due to declining revenues.

Fourteen city employees are being laid off and another 13 vacant positions will be eliminated.

“It is unfortunate we need to make these reductions. However, these are necessary actions to re-balance the city’s two year budget through December 2012,” Mayor Don Gough said.

The city’s advisory boards are hosting a town hall this weekend to explain the budget outlook and hear your opinions about the services and programs that are important to you.

The meeting will take place Saturday, Sept. 10, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Edmonds Community College, Snoqualmie Building, Room 113.

Your feedback will be formally submitted to the City Council.
