“When we’re out and about in the community, our team often engages with residents who don’t fully understand where and how the City allocates tax dollars. Residents also don’t know about all of the opportunities they have to voice their thoughts about Durham, and how those opportunities can influence future budget decisions." -- Ms. Bertha Johnson, City of Durham
Attendees will engage in a budget process simulation while learning about how budget guidelines influence funding decisions. Staff will also share annual budget timeline information and provide insight on the best time to share budgetary ideas. Other City departments will also be on hand to share ways residents can get involved with their work and help shape the City’s direction, whether that’s by joining a Board, Commission or Committee, voting on Participatory Budgeting projects, or providing input on the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
