oaknorthtree4We all know the economy is in the pits, and the hits keep on coming.  Car dealerships are struggling and career centers are seeing a spike of unemployed people seeking help.

The city may plug some budget holes by increasing parking fees.  Oakland North will be at the meeting tonight, so keep your eye out for our updates.

Are you unsatisfied with the current proposals to fix the budget crisis?  Think you could do a better job?  Well try your hand at the Oakland Budget Challenge.
