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.
Here’s the complete Budget Workshop schedule:
- Thursday, January 24 @ 5:30 pm: Convention & Visitors Bureau, Office of Human Resources, Office of Planning & Economic Development, Office of Budget and Management
- 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!
