City Council schedules public budget hearing in the Northeast

Philadelphia City Council is coming to the Northeast.

On Tuesday, May 8, Council will hold a public budget hearing at St. William’s School in Lawncrest. Ninth District Councilwoman Marian Tasco made the announcement last night at the Lawncrest Community Association meeting.

“Please come and show your interest,” Tasco encouraged. LCA meetings typically draw 80 to 100 impassioned residents, many of whom Tasco has been working with on specific neighborhood improvement projects. The meeting will be open to the general public and starts at 6 p.m.

The first neighborhood budget meeting was held last week in the Councilman Kenyatta Johnson’s 2nd District.

“To bring City Council here is a tribute to all you for coming here,” LCA President Bill Dolbow said. “It’s a reflection of our neighborhood.”
