Detroit, MI - The City of Detroit is inviting residents to attend its 24th Annual Public Budget Meeting hosted virtually by the Office of Budget. Attendees will have their first chance to share their priorities for the City’s budget. The meeting is Thursday, October 21 starting at 5:30 p.m.
The Annual Public Budget Meeting provides residents an opportunity to learn more about the programs and services funded by the City’s budget and to provide public comment. It marks the first stage of public engagement on the development of the Fiscal Year 2022-2023 Budget, which takes effect on July 1, 2022. Topics will include how the budget is funded and major service areas like public health and safety, public works, street lighting, housing, recreation, and public transit.
In January, the City will continue its public engagement by hosting Community Budget Priorities Forums with each Council District. In early March, the Mayor will present the proposed budget, followed by City Council budget hearings during March and April.
