Planning for the city’s 2018–19 fiscal year budget is underway. Residents have the opportunity to provide input on the budget during upcoming public hearings. Comments can be made to the City Council on any aspect of the budget including existing programs, new service requests, taxes and fees.
Public input sessions are set for June 8 and 22. Two additional hearings will be held to comment on the proposed budget and tax rate following the budget retreat in August. Adoption of the budget is scheduled for Sept. 20. Public input also can be submitted on the city’s website.
All hearings are at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 825 W. Irving Blvd. The city’s budget year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30. Call the City Secretary’s Office at (972) 721-2493 to confirm hearing dates.
