A City of San Diego memo from the office of Councilwoman Lorie Zapf that the OB Rag has obtained shows that the expansion of the Ocean Beach Library is one of Zapf’s top 7 budget concerns.
In a memo from Zapf to Andrea Tevlin, the Independent Budget Analyst, dated January 16, 2015, it states:
“It is important that we fully fund the expansion of the Ocean Beach library.”
Even though the OB Library is listed as number 7 on the list, the memo begins:
“Below is a list of Council District 2 priorities that I would like to see included in the upcoming budget discussions. This list is not in a ranked order.” (Our emphasis)
The memo then goes on to list 7 priorities, with number 7 being “Ocean Beach Library Expansion”.
The other six funding priorities include Police officer retention, De Anza Cove Plan update, street repairs, and the Ocean Beach Lifeguard Station.
