TITLE

Recommendation to increase appropriations in the General Fund Group in the City Manager Department by $140,000, offset by $140,000 of savings in Ninth Council District budgeted office funds transferred from the Citywide Activities Department to support the Uptown Jazz Festival; and

 

Decrease appropriations in the General Fund Group in the Citywide Activities Department by $140,000 to offset a transfer to the City Manager Department.

 

DISCUSSION

The City Manager's Office of Special Events and Filming will be organizing the Uptown Jazz Festival on behalf of the Ninth Council District on August 27, 2022, at Houghton Park. The Uptown Jazz Festival is currently in its 11th year and remains a well-attended event that thousands of Long Beach families and community members attend. Residents come to the park and enjoy community, music, community resources, vendors, a kids' area, and more. This event offers a significant opportunity to conduct outreach to the Uptown community around the issues of health and economic recovery. The District 9 Council Office is in the process of seeking private donations to offset the costs associated by the festival. The Ninth Council District will engage in fund raising efforts to support this event. If funds are raised, an equal amount, up to $140,000, of Ninth Council District office budget savings allocated to this event through this recommendation will be returned to the Ninth Council District office budget.
