SFMTA to Host Budget Town Halls Meetings
Upcoming Two-year Budget Cycle Starts July 1
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which oversees all transportation in the city, including the Municipal Railway (Muni), will host a series of town hall meetings in March to discuss its upcoming two-year budget.
This series of citywide public meetings, the first of which is March 3, will provide San Francisco residents an opportunity to hear what is being proposed in the two-year budget, including potential increases to fares, fees and fines, and to meet directly with SFMTA staff to discuss specific programs and projects. These meetings will also be an opportunity to discuss the Agency’s long-standing structural operating and capital budget deficits and their impact on services.
A presentation of the FY 2013 and FY 2014 preliminary budget can be found at: http://www.sfmta.com/cms/cmta/d! ocuments/2-21-12Item11FY2013-2014OperatingBudget.pdf.
