Public invited to council members’ meetings on city budget

City Councilwomen Regina Romero and Karin Uhlich are holding forums this week to discuss Tucson’s budget.

• Ulrich’s, at 6 p.m. Monday, is part of the “Community Conversations” discussion series. It will be held at her Ward 3 office, 1510 E. Grant Road.

• Romero’s, 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, is among a series of town hall-type meetings

A news release from her Ward 1 office said city staff presentations Wednesday would cover Tucson’s revenue projections, the status of reserves, funding for social service agencies, the impact of the recent wave of retirements among city employees.

Officials will also compare Tucson’s situation to other municipalities’ and then take questions from the public.

The Wednesday meeting will be held at the Sentinel Building in the Community Resource Center, 310 N. Commerce Park Loop.

Transportation Director Jim Glock, Deputy City Manager Mike Letcher and Assistant City Manager Richard Miranda will take questions, and Pima County Board of Supervisors Chairman Richard Elías will talk about the ways the city and county are working together through the economic downturn.

Aides at the other ward offices said budget meetings are being organized but no dates have been set.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
