Workshops Will Discuss City Budget

If you would like to learn about the City’s proposed Fiscal Year 2019 Budget, attend the City’s Budget Workshop Sessions, which will take place:

  • 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10
  • 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12
  • 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17

During the sessions, which will take place in the Council Chambers of City Hall, 303 W Wesley Street, City staff and the City Council will discuss and review the proposed City budget for the upcoming fiscal year. This upcoming budget will match the calendar year, as the City has transitioned from a May to April fiscal year to a calendar year budget starting with this budget. The draft budget is now available on the City’s website.
These workshop sessions will be recorded and will be available on the City’s website.
