Join Madison Common Council members and me for the 2013 Community Budget meetings at locations throughout the City. The budget debates continue to be difficult as our needs grow, but our dollars do not keep up. Your feedback and input is crucial, and these meetings, as well as your on-line participation provide a great opportunity to not only learn how the decisions are made and how taxpayer dollars are spent, but also to have your concerns and comments considered for next year's budget deliberations.
We are asking for everyone's ideas and votes as they will help us develop the themes of this year's community budget conversations. I am pleased that we are also able to get ideas on line and accessible to people who might not be able to make it to any of the meetings.
The community budget conversations will take place this month as City officials and staff work to create a budget that represents and encompass the values of the residents of Madison. This year, ideas are also being collected through IdeaScale and through the Budget Conversation Events. I urge you to go on line to utilize this method of learning what others think, and to share your thoughts.
There are four sessions and residents are invited to attend as many as they wish.
