MAYOR BLOOMBERG SIGNS LEGISLATION EXTENDING DEADLINE FOR RELEASE OF PRELIMINARY BUDGET
Remarks by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg at a Public Hearing on Local Laws
“The final bill before me is Introductory Number 774, sponsored at the request of the Administration by Council Member Weprin.
“This bill extends the dates – by approximately two weeks – for the submission of the Preliminary Budget to the City Council and for the other charter mandated actions required during the Preliminary Budget process.
“This action is necessary so the City can more fully assess its fiscal outlook before submitting the Preliminary Budget and so such submission does not interfere with the Martin Luther King holiday.
“I would like to thank the Office of Management and Budget and the City Council for their work on this bill.”
