MAYOR’S STATE OF THE CITY ADDRESS TO FOCUS ON FUTURE
Public is invited to speech and reception August 30

Mayor Chris Beutler will deliver his State of the City address at 3 p.m. Thursday, August 30 in the City Council Chambers, 555 South 10th Street. The public is invited to attend the speech. It also will be carried live on 5 CITY-TV, the government access cable channel and on the City Web site, lincoln.ne.gov. The public also is invited to a reception immediately following the speech just outside the Mayor's Office on the second floor of the County-City Building.

In previous years, the State of the City address was combined with the release of the City budget. This year, Mayor Beutler gave a budget presentation July 9 and chose to deliver the State of the City address to coincide with the beginning of the City's new fiscal year September 1.

"Because of the budget situation, I wanted to focus solely on City finances during my remarks in July," said Mayor Beutler. "In my first State of the City address, I will take a more broad look at my vision for how we can best plan for Lincoln's future."

Free public parking is available in the lot north of the County-City Building, across "K" Street. The parking gate on the lot will be open, so drivers do not need to get a pass to exit.
