City of Decatur invites community to town square learn about the budget
Touch-A-Budget Expo, the city of Decatur’s annual public discussion about the budget, is approaching on Mar. 21, from 5 to 7 p.m.
This free event will be held on the Decatur Square, next to the MARTA station. The city invites all community members to come learn about public safety, see the plans for Decatur’s upcoming fiscal year and meet city employees.
This event doesn’t stop with talking about the budget, though – “the expo will feature music, food and prizes.”
Here is the full announcement from the city of Decatur.
The City of Decatur is hosting its annual Touch-A-Budget Expo from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21 on the MARTA Plaza. Every one in the community is welcome at this free event. In addition to learning about the city’s plans for spending in the July 2017 – June 2018 fiscal year, the expo will feature music, food and prizes. The purpose of Touch-A-Budget is to engage people of all ages in the city’s budgeting process in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
The popular Card of Strategy game returns this year, appropriate for ages 5 to 105. Public safety and public works vehicles will be parked in front of the Old Courthouse for children and adults to see up close. A tiny office will also be on hand for touring. Touch-A-Budget attendees will also be able to visit the Visitors’ Center tent and sign up as special events volunteers.
