City Council 2010 Budget Re-cap

Published by at 6:48 pm under Budget

The Council finished working through the 2010 budget process and approved an annual operating budget of $907 million. A prominent feature of this budget process was the restoration of $860,000 to Seattle Public Libraries that reestablished operating hours that would have been lost. Following are a few budget highlights.

In the area of Technology, the Council added a total of $110,000 which will include $20,000 to launch an “Apps for Seattle” contest that will tap into local web developers and citizens to develop applications, websites and tools using the City’s open data sets. This $20,000 can result in millions in dollar value relative to creating useful applications for the city. We also added $50,000 to the Technology Matching Fund grant program which increases access to electronic information and technology for citizens who may not otherwise have the means of access.

The Council continues its commitment to put people first by approving $752,000 in Human Services funding. Highlights include $150,000 for a residential recovery program for prostituted youth. This is a two-year pilot program that will provide shelter and recovery services for prostituted children; and restoration of $200,000 to fund technical assistance and capacity building for nonprofit groups.

In the area of Public Safety, Criminal Justice and Youth Violence, the Council added a total of $1,033,000. Highlights include $1 million in restored funding for the CURB, GOTS and Co-STAR programs, which help low level offenders connect with the social service and rehabilitation programs they need. The Council also chose to continue funding for the addition of 20 new police officers in 2010.

The Council also took action to add $5.2 million to the Rainy Day Fund which will bolster the 2011 budget and restored nearly $1 million for City Lights accelerated conservation program. The Rainy Day fund will now total $10.5 million. In April of 2009, the fund totaled $30 million. This decision recognizes the need for possible cash reserves in the future and I fully supported this more conservative approach.
