Oakland’s Cultural Arts Program Saved

Oakland City Council members eliminated the city’s $42 million dollar deficit last night, while managing to save most of the city’s $1.14 million Cultural Arts Grant Program. The council’s previous plan to deep make cuts to the art grants program had sparked outrage among the city’s arts community. To spare the program, the council voted instead to eliminate public activities such as parades and street fairs, and slashed or downgraded several positions in the Parks and Recreation Department.
