The City’s finances and what it means for our new library

Last Saturday, on February 1, at the El Cerrito Town Hall’s well-attended meeting, the residents learned more about the city’s poor finances.* The next two meetings on February 12 and March 14 will be about the City’s Strategic Plan that reflect community’s priorities. To help the city staff make smart decisions on what services to cut to lower expenses, we must let them know what city services are very important to us today and in the next few years.

We are disappointed that we will have to wait longer for a new library, but we must let the city staff know TODAY that our current library and its newly restored full-time services are important for our community’s quality of life. Please plan to attend the open house, workshop and fill out the online survey to make your voice heard.
