The NC Budget Advocate process was created to help Neighborhood Councils present an annual list of budget priorities to the Mayor and City Council.
The Budget Advocates are an elected, all volunteer, independent advisory body charged with making constructive recommendations on the City’s budget to the Mayor and City Council and inspiring City Departments to improve their operations. Budget Advocates also solicit stakeholder input on City services, inform Angelenos on the City’s fiscal management and report on the City’s progress.
