Spokane residents will be able to be get informed on the developing 2014 budget at a Telephone Town Hall meeting hosted by Mayor David Condon on Wednesday at 6pm
Residents can call in from 6 to 7pm at the toll-free number 888-409-5380, to ask Mayor Condon questions about the budget and give other input. The city will also send out thousands of calls asking residents if they would like to participate in the meeting.
“Our intention is to provide citizens with information early and throughout the process of developing the 2014 budget,” Condon said. “Last year’s budget approach taught us a lot about how to provide citizens more information earlier and help the public participate in the process.”
This will be the first of many opportunities for Spokane citizens to voice their opinions on budget and other concerns including community presentations by members of the Mayor’s cabinet and neighborhood council meetings. There are no specific dates yet for these events.
