WALNUT CREEK -- While the city may be in the middle of its two-year budget cycle, city leaders Tuesday will start work on how to provide services with future budget deficits looming.

Over the series of the next few meetings, the City Council will get information and hold public hearings on Walnut Creek's financial sustainability.

To balance future budgets the city will have to reduce services, find alternative ways to deliver the services, increase revenues or some combination. In the weeks ahead city leaders will focus on specific programs listed below.

  • 7 p.m. Tuesday -- Public parking and downtown enhancements and golf course

  • 7 p.m. April 2 -- Clean water, technology infrastructure and asset management

  • 7 p.m. April 16 -- Parks and open space, class and camps and senior support

  • 8 a.m. April 27 -- Aquatics, library, performing and visual arts, school and non profit support

    All meetings will be held at City Hall 1666 N. Main St. and are open to the public.
