HOW SHOULD THE CITY SPEND YOUR MONEY? As previewed here last night, the city’s next budget workshop, seeking your ideas on how the city should spend your money in the next budget cycle, is 6-8 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. Special focus: Public safety and civil rights, though you can bring up other aspects too. (We mentioned in our preview that the Seattle Privacy Coalition plans to call for a city privacy review; here’s the letter they’ll be presenting and circulating.) Even if you can’t stay for the whole meeting, the city invites you to stop by and have a say. (4408 Delridge Way SW)
