Council Member Robinson to Address the 2011 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) Released by the Controller’s Office

PITTSBURGH – On May 7, 2012, Allegheny County Council Member William Russell Robinson, Chair of the Budget and Finance Committee, will give his response to the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report supplied by the Controller’s Office. He will state what he believes are the basic ingredients for a long term financial plan.

 “Allegheny County desperately needs a long range financial plan that addresses both revenues and expenditures, as well as plans for the economic growth of our county.”

Over the last 5 years that Councilman Robinson has served as Chairman of the Budget and Finance Committee, the CAFR has identified key areas that the Executive and Legislative branches should address. This year’s presentation is no different, but the financial situation is more critical. Councilman Robinson will express what he believes should be the parameters of the Council’s response and plan for next year’s budget and budgets to follow.

This conference is to be held on Monday May 7, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. in Conference Room 1 of the Allegheny County Courthouse.
