Offsite budget meeting to address proposed Botanical Garden fee and more 

The Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee meeting at Horace Mann Middle School last Wednesday evening was well-attended and full of news. Muni chief Nat Ford revealed some interesting facts about the transit agency’s budget, which was reported by The Examiner.

Now, the budget committee is once again on the road next Wednesday evening. This time, the location is the Hall of Flowers at 9th Avenue at Lincoln Way, with a 4 p.m. start time.

The committee will talk about the city’s 10-year capital plan, which has some funding weaknesses, Muni’s budget for the next two years, and the proposed Recreation and Park Department Budget. The Examiner first reported that Mayor Gavin Newsom introduced legislation to charge tourists – all non-residents – for entry into the Botanical Gardens and higher fees than residents for the Coit Tower. The gardens fee is going to be one of those politically charged issues discussed by the committee.
