Public Hearing on the City of Birmingham Budget

Wednesday, June 2 – 6:00 p.m. – Council Chambers

The citizens of the city of Birmingham are invited to attend a public hearing on the budget that Mayor William Bell has presented to the city council. The proposed budget includes a 10% pay cut to all city employees and the recommended temporary closing of five libraries and seven recreation centers.

At Wednesday’s hearing before the council, the public will be able to speak their concerns and offer suggestions in regards to the city’s plans. We at BPL want to continue providing the highest quality service to our community in these troubled economic times. For those who wish to show their support for the library and all it provides to our city, now is the time to let your voice be heard!
