Wilmont Members, Residents and Friends:
This is a request of you. The approximate 40% reduction in the 2020-21 City budget will be discussed by Santa Monica City Councilors and acted upon on Tuesday, May 5th, beginning at 3PM and extending into the evening. If you can, please take the time to view this meeting.
We cannot overstate the momentous nature of the discussion, as these reductions will substantively if not drastically, affect WILMONT and all residents of Santa Monica. An informed citizenry is an effective citizenry and if we do not digest and react to the proposed budget changes we will simply have to live with them.
The link at the bottom of this email accesses the City Developed Restructure Plan for the FY 2020-21 City Budget and Staff Report for the your review ('A Plan For The Future').
