On June 19, the Decatur City Commission will adopt its budget for the 2017-2018 fiscal year. Before then, residents can learn about the budget in several ways provided by the city, according to a city press release.

First, the budget document can be read online by clicking here. A budget document contains the details of the city’s budget, including financial summaries and what the money will be used for. Hard copies are available for check-out at the Decatur Library reference desk (215 Sycamore Street) and the City Clerk’s Office (509 N. McDonough Street).

The City Commission also invites residents to attend their meetings, which are always open to the public. These meetings allow residents to learn more about the budget, millage rate and more, and to share their opinion. There are three public hearings scheduled in the coming weeks:

  • Monday, June 12 at 6 p.m.
  • Monday, June 19 at 3:30 p.m.
  • Monday, June 19 at 7:30 p.m.

All meetings are held in the City Commission Meeting Room at Decatur City Hall (509 N. McDonough Street).

If attending a meeting is not possible, you can still let the City Commission know your thoughts by sharing them on the Open City Hall Forum.

You can watch the archived video of the City Commission work session focused on the revised budget for the 2016-2017 fiscal year and the proposed budget for the 2017-2018 fiscal year. An archived video of the session is now available on the City’s website.
