Message from Council Member Juarez’s Office
We need your help. There has been a new development in the City’s budget process that leads to potential negative implications for the Lake City Community Center rebuild.
The new budget chair, Councilmember Lisa Herbold, has signaled she may reallocate some of the Lake City Community Center’s funds to other projects. She is considering this reallocation because the Parks department has indicated they would not spend all of the funds in 2018. However, we know that any movement backwards threatens the future success of the project. We need the entire funding to remain in place. Please contact Councilmember Herbold to ensure the project receives the full $5M committed in the Mayor’s 2018 budget.
Councilmember Juarez will be discussing funding for the project at the Budget Committee meeting Friday afternoon. We want to show there is a united effort behind this project. Please start contacting Councilmember Herbold’s office at 3pm this Friday, 10/13 and through the weekend to let her know it’s imperative we maintain the full funding commitment of $5M in the Mayor’s budget for a new Lake City Community Center.
