Help make the 2024 budget for our city!

It's time to talk about how we'll use our resources in 2024. This year, the City will host four in-person engagements and one virtual engagement to get input from all corners of the city.

From bridges to potholes, sidewalks to speed humps, and pensions to fire trucks, everyone has a say in how we invest our government funds. Join your neighbors for roundtable discussions with representatives of City departments to learn more and cast your vote for what matters most for your community.

Dinner will be provided.
