Schedule for Council budget process (as of Feb. 13)

This morning, the Mayor’s office is holding a briefing session for media about the Mayor’s portion of the budget process, which is already underway.

The Council’s Budget & Finance Committee will soon be working on the budget too. Here’s the most current information about the Council’s budget process:

  • In late February and early March, there will be six community budget meetings held at different locations around the county. The idea behind these meetings is to give the public an opportunity to see and hear the budget information that the Council has seen and heard over the last 90-days. More details about dates, times, and locations here.
  • After the Mayor releases his budget on March 31, the Council Budget & Finance Committee will have public budget hearings with Metro’s largest departments. The tentative schedule for those hearing is here.
  • Here is a planned schedule for the full Council budget process, including the target date to pass the budget of May 19.

This schedule is subject to change as we get further into the budget process. This is the best information that is available today.
