As you may know, unlike the federal government, states are not able to run deficits in their budgets. Here in Washington, we too must balance our budget, and the costs from this pandemic will have to be paid for by a reduction in services. We know so many are hurting right now, and the effects of Covid-19 will be felt for a long time after the initial response is over. Your life and the lives of our friends, families, and neighbors are what matters most, and we will get through this together. In this tough time, it is important we do our best to be resilient, continue to care for one other, and stay informed.

Always keeping us up-to-date, Council Member Beale has the following information for us:

Please see the council budget briefing presentation with information from city staff to the City Council. The presentation covers the deep cuts that are being immediately taken in response to COVID-19. Please let myself, Lynda Foster or Bucoda Warren, as corresponding staff liaisons, know if you all have questions about this information during this critical time and we can try to get you answers.
Thank you.


Gratefully in service,
Chris Beale, AICP
