Bloomberg restores community board funding

From City Pragmatist:

Mayor Bloomberg’s Fiscal Year 2011 Executive Budget calls for the restoration of community board funding to $198,895.

The restoration comes after almost $60,000 in reductions proposed by the mayor’s Office of Management and Budget earlier this year.

Those proposed reductions prompted many community board members to argue for “baseline budgeting” at April’s charter revision commission public hearings. Many boards also reached out for help to their borough presidents and City Council members.

In the end it was Mayor Bloomberg who proposed the budget restoration, possibly to dispel growing criticism that he was not supportive of the boards. Community board leaders had expected Mr. Bloomberg to leave any possible restoration to the City Council, which still must approve his Executive Budget.

You can be sure that he now expects them to fall in line with him on everything that comes their way. I scratch your back, you kiss my butt.

Sure, and cut them off so all the heat is directed at him direclty and not headed off in the community by their own kind?

Naw, they will be around a while. He DOES still need the council.

That's the Bloomturd way! How many fellow NY'ers will wake up to the truth? With media like ours, not many most likely.

While we are on the subject of Bloomy and funding I haven't heard it widely publicized yet but there is going to be a July NYPD academy class of 1,200 recruits.
