We’ll soon know the fate of the Ballard and Loyal Heights Community centers. The mayor’s mid-year budget cuts will be announced on Monday (6/14), including any cuts to the city’s Parks and Recreation department.
Ballard residents turned out in force back in May to fight to keep the centers open. The cuts being announced for the rest of this year could involve closing centers or programs, scaling back hours, or doing nothing at all. Even if the centers survive this mid-year round of cuts, there is still concern about even more cuts for 2011.
The mid-year cuts will be unveiled during the City Council’s budget committee meeting on Monday at 10:30am. We’ll bring you all the details, or you can watch live on the Seattle Channel (21 on Comcast) or online.
