A Message From City Council President Brendan Finn

Dear Neighbors,

We want to update you on the progress being made with regard to the City’s Proposed Budget. As you know, our City Council is committed to our pledge to provide a budget with a ZERO percent tax increase.

Our City Manager Daniel Creighton and his team have been working tirelessly towards that goal—to honor this pledge, while bringing forth a budget that will enhance our City and best serve our residents.

The work continues. At present, City Manager Creighton has presented a budget in which taxes would increase 1.04 percent. We have asked Dan to continue the process toward our goal of a zero percent increase.

We are confident in our team to get this done.

We are also fortunate to have a great partner in John Mooney and the CSEA. His team has committed to work with us on the budget, and we know that commitment will go a long way to benefit our City residents and workers, and reaching our goal. We are grateful for the teamwork and certain that this will help bring us to a budget that everyone can live with, providing a zero percent tax increase without cutting any services or diminishing our residents’ quality of life.

In the coming weeks we will continue this work and achieve our goals.

The future looks very bright for Long Beach.

Brendan Finn
City Council President

Seal Sightings

In light of the recent increase in seal sightings on our local beaches, the City would like to remind everyone to please make sure to give seals their space. Please stay at least 150 feet away and do not attempt to touch, feed, harm or disturb them. It is normal for seals to rest on beaches, and normal for moms to leave pups alone while they forage.
If you find a seal, and are concerned that it may be sick or injured, please contact the NY State 24-hour Rescue Hotline at 631-369-9829.
Seals are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. A violation may result in one year of jail time and/or fines of up to $20,000.
