Community Budget Workshops around Seattle

City Councilmembers will host  four “Community Budget Workshops” in Delridge, the Central District, University  District and Columbia City over the month of May. Councilmembers will  engage with the public to ask their spending priorities for the 2015-2016 City  budget. Members of the public can make suggestions about the specific  departments listed for each workshop, as well as identify neighborhood needs  and priorities. After a City Budget Office presentation, there will be small  group discussions with Councilmembers, and a report back at the end. The public  is encouraged to drop in during any of the scheduled times to talk about any  issues concerning the City budget.

“We  wanted to reach out into the community and hear what the public has to say  about their budget,” said Councilmember  Nick Licata, Chair of the City Council Budget Committee. “I hope  you’ll stop by to talk to us about any issues important to you.”
