another budget blunder

Mon Dec 19, 2005 Miss Vicky 

I received an email about arts funding in the 2006 budget. I'll let it speak for itself:

Council has chosen to cut $80,000 in previously approved funds from 6 Ottawa arts organizations - Arts Ottawa East, Council for the Arts in Ottawa, La Nouvelle Scene, Ottawa Art Gallery, Ottawa Arts Court Foundation and the Ottawa School of Art.

There is still time to put this money back in the 2006 budget!

$80,000: Small beans for the City but a big deal for the Arts
- Each dollar invested by the City is leveraged to produce $10 of programming
- The City has chronically under funded the Arts. This money was approved last year in recognition of this.
- We need the money! This money is already built into our budget for this
fiscal year. We will have to make cuts if it is taken away.

Your voice is needed!
Councillors will be hearing from many groups with different requests. They need to know that the Arts are important to you! A call or e-mail today will let your councillor know that you are paying attention to their votes during this budget, and will influence your vote during next year’s election.

How they voted yesterday:
Yeas: Holmes, Feltmate, Legendre, Stavinga, Rick Chiarelli, Bédard, Cullen, Mayor Chiarelli
Nays:
Thompson, Little, Bloess, McCrae, Bellemare, Hunter, Deans, Jellett, Harder, El-Chantiry
Out of the room: Doucet, Brooks, Hume


Let our councillor know how you feel about arts funding:
Councillor Shawn Little
613-580-2485

What is frustrating about this and a few other decisions is that groups had no idea that these programs would be on the chopping block, so there was no chance to mobilize and advocate for their retention. Small wonder the public debate on this budget was minimal - all the tough decisions were left to last when folks thought their services were safe.

Some people were moved to reply

I'm a little confused on the Yeas vs. Nays.

Since it's 8 Yeas to 10 Nays I'm assuming they voted on *keeping* the $80,000, but it's not quite clear.

UPDATE:
The Budget Meetings' Minutes aren't posted yet either.

I did notice that the next one is tomorrow though. So write in NOW!

That's what I'm assuming.

Yeh, well it all does sound very economic....they were having trouble this year coming up with £50,000 for the Edinburgh Arts Festival, you're right where you intuitively feel the retrenchment didn't have to hit the Arts, it's more like they're picking the people least likely to actually bite them when they say "We're taking some of your sustenance away!" and they're more scared of the other sectors. A bullying quality behind the "decisions" (for want of a better word)
