CITY PARKS -- In 2013 the City of Spokane Parks and Recreation Department will be facing an estimated 5.5 percent budget reduction totaling about $1 million.

Parks officials have set two public meetings this week to help form priorities for the program cuts that will need to be made:

Tuesday, June 26, 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at Southside Community Center, 3151 E. 27th, in the Spokane Parks Foundation Ballroom.

Thursday, June 28, 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at Northeast Community Center, 4001 N. Cook, in the Hillyard Senior Center, Conference Room. 

If you can't make it to one of the meetings, please give your opinion in this short survey.
