Mayor Steve Noble Announces Community Budget Forum to be held on Monday, August 28th at 6:00pm at City Hall
Mayor Steve Noble is pleased to announce a community forum regarding the City of Kingston’s budget process will be held on Monday, August 28th at 6:00pm at City Hall, located at 420 Broadway.
The evening will begin with opening remarks from Mayor Noble, followed by an overview of the major components of the City budget led by City Comptroller John Tuey. Following this presentation, participants will be invited to break out into small work groups where they will discuss the budget in greater detail and offer feedback on where the City should prioritize resources.
Leadership from the various City departments will also be participating throughout the evening. Questions, suggestions and general comments will be gathered by city staff to be referred to during the budget planning process.
This is the second annual community budget forum. Mayor Noble instituted this new part of the budget process in 2016 in an effort to better inform his administration of the priorities and concerns of Kingston taxpayers. As in 2016, an online survey will be launched immediately after the budget forum in order to facilitate additional community input.
