City of Springfield public budget sessions start Jan 10

municipalbuildingfrontWard 8 Residents,

Mark your calendars! Beginning next Thursday 10th Jan, the City of Springfield will hold a series of ‘budget workshops’ – each one is open to the public. The City’s fiscal year runs March 1 through February 28: these workshops will focus on planning for next year’s FY2020 budget.

All budget meetings will be held in the City Council Chambers at 300 S. Seventh Street, 3rd Floor. The meetings will also be televised on Comcast Cable Channel 18.

Here’s the complete Budget Workshop schedule:

  • Wednesday, February 13 @ 5:30pm: Public Hearing
  • Tuesday, February 19 @ 5:30 pm: City Council budget vote


Springfield residents may sign up to speak at the Public Hearing on Wed Feb 13. You can make a Request to Address the City Council via the City of Springfield’s website.

I plan on being at each of these budget workshops… hope to see some fellow Ward 8 residents there!
