City adopts interim budget, changes ‘State of the City’ date

Staff Reports

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – South Lake Tahoe Mayor Hal Cole will give a “State of the City” address two days earlier than previously scheduled.

The address is now scheduled for 9 a.m. Oct. 18 at Lake Tahoe Airport, said city spokeswoman Nancy Kerry on Thursday.

The state of the city address is expected to become an annual event every October, near the start of the city’s fiscal year, according to the city’s website.

On Tuesday, the city council approved an interim budget for the month of October while staff look at several suggestions to close a projected $5.2 million gap in the city’s 2011-2012 budget.

More than 20 city job cuts have been proposed for elimination as part of measures to close the budget gap.

The city council is tentatively scheduled to discuss the budget at a special meeting at 6 p.m. Oct. 11 at Lake Tahoe Airport.
