A memo from Cincinnati Council's Budget and Finance Committee chairwoman says the city manager will send his 2013 budget proposal to the Mayor on November 26th.
Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls announced public hearings will be held on December 6th and 10th. Both will begin at 6 o'clock in the evening with the locations to be announced.
The manager's spending plan will outline his ideas for closing a general fund deficit that has been reported to be between $34 and $40 million.
The budget plan will likely cover just 6 months from January through June. The city is changing to a fiscal year that will start on July 1st. This means Council will have budget talks in June of each year instead of December just before the holidays.
