How do I get involved or learn about the budget before it’s adopted?

At any time of the year, citizens can view the city’s budget online, in the Branigan Library or at City Hall (City Clerk’s Office). Residents can discuss it with neighbors, city staff or Council members. In addition, the City Council has several special budget workshops every year that citizens can attend and/or watch on CLC-TV 20. Council agendas are posted on the City’s website so that the community can be aware of the dates the budget will be discussed.
