Mayor's Office Budget -- print to PDF, please

On Monday, November 8, 2004, the Mayor is to give his budget address. The budget is not online.

Meanwhile, the budget was approved by the Oversight Board on Friday, November 5, 2004. The budget could have been posted as it went to them.

On Oct 4, an online version of the city's budget became available.
That budget was rejected by the oversight board. But, it was made available to the media with a press release on September 23, 2004.

We should not need to wait for two or three weeks to see a current snapshot of the budget. Print it to PDF. That's not hard.
Mayor's Office Press Releases
NOTE: Members of the media can obtain a copy of the Mayor's budget submission at the reception desk of the Mayor's Office on the 5th Floor of the City-County Building.

We waited since Sept. 23 for the release of the massive budget in a PDF. Print to PDF takes minutes if open-source software was utilized.
