The Dallas City Council will adopt next year’s budget on Sept. 24 (the city’s budget year runs from Oct. 2008 to Sept. 2009). It’s your last chance to experience the exciting and captivating city budget presentation. Okay, so it may not quite reach the heights of “captivating,” or even “interesting,” but don’t you want to know how the city is spending $2.7 billion of your money?
Seriously, I really do appreciate your guidance and input on the budget, so I hope you’ll join me. Later this month, I’ll have an opportunity to suggest amendments and changes to this draft budget, and your feedback will be of great help.
You can also take a look at the very same budget information that I have by visiting www.dallascityhall.com. (This year, I requested that the City Manager also post the line-item budget, which contains much more detail. Enjoy.)
