MAYOR BLOOMBERG SIGNS LEGISLATION EXTENDING THE DATE OF THE PRELIMINARY BUDGET AND THE COMPLETION OF BUDGET HEARINGS
Remarks by Mayor Bloomberg at a Public Hearing on Local Laws
"The first of three bills before me today is Introductory Number 910, sponsored at the request of the Administration by Council Members Weprin and Comrie.
"Introductory Number 910 extends the date for the completion of the Preliminary Budget to January 30th and extends the date for the completion of the budget hearings to April 8th. Introductory Number 910 also makes corresponding adjustments for the other Charter mandated actions required during the budget process. This action is necessary so the City can further refine its Fiscal Year 2010 budget proposal prior to submission.
"I would like to thank the Office of Management and Budget and the City Council for their work on this bill."
