The Progressive Democrats of Benicia invite all interested Benicians to our April 11 meeting. We were really looking forward to seeing everyone in person, but due to COVID and illness we are switching back to Zoom. We look forward to seeing everyone in the future when we are all well. Please see use the Zoom details below to sign in to our meeting.
The focus of the meeting will be “Benicia’s Budget Crisis: The Problem and Potential Solutions.” Our city budget’s multi-million dollar shortfall stretches far beyond this year, into the indefinite future. It forces all of us to confront some tough funding decisions:
- What City services are at risk?
- Is there a tax increase in the future?
- How can we increase the City’s revenues?
- What other solutions are available?
“Benicia’s Budget Crisis” Panel
Mayor Steve Young, County Supervisor Monica Brown and Assistant City Manager Bret Prebula, who was Benicia’s Finance Director up until December 2022, will explain the nature and extent of this serious challenge and discuss potential approaches to generating revenue or cutting costs. There will then be an opportunity for extended Q&A period.
Everyone is welcome, regardless of whether you are PDB members or Benicia residents.
