October 2, 2012 · 4:29 PM
Mayor John Marchione will introduce his city 2013-2014 biennial budget to the City Council during the Oct. 9 study session.
“This budget reflects months of hard work by staff and my administration to meet the priorities identified by citizens using the city’s Budgeting by Priorities process,” said Mayor Marchione. “Budgeting by Priorities focuses city resources more effectively by engaging citizens to learn what they value most in city government. City departments then create budget ‘offers’ designed to best meet those priorities through detailed and measurable proposals. We’re excited to share this budget with council as we work together to create an effective final budget in the upcoming weeks.”
The city will hold will hold several study sessions beginning in October and running through November to discuss the budget. The public is welcome to offer its comments during two public budget hearings scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Oct. 16 and Nov. 20 in Council Chambers located at 15670 N.E. 85th St.
