Let’s gather – Decatur will hold budget meeting

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt May 19, 2014

If you’re interested in how the city’s budget works, there’s a meeting you should attend.

City of Decatur will hold a Community Budget Gathering on Tuesday, May 20, at 7 pm at Decatur City Hall, located at 509 N. McDonough Street. The city is currently preparing its Fiscal Year 2015 budget, which begins July 1. Commissioners will discuss and adopt the budget in June. The current budget, Fiscal Year 2014, was $20.6 million when commissioners adopted it last year.

“Join Budget Manager Meredith Roark, Assistant City Manager Andrea Arnold and others interested in learning about the City’s budget process,” the announcement from the city says. “This is your chance to find out how the budget process works and give your input. If you missed the first Community Budget Gathering back in April, don’t worry. Participation then is not required to attend tomorrow evening’s meeting. Sign up today with Meredith, Meredith.Roark@decaturga.com or call 404-370-4102, if you think you’ll be attending.”
