Duluth seeks citizens to take part in budget review advisory committee

Duluth officials believe communication with and guidance from citizens is instrumental in having a healthy community. Part of this guidance comes from the Citizen’s Budget Review Advisory Committee. Previous budget committees reflected a cross section of the citizenry and provided helpful feedback and recommendations on ways the city can be more efficient and effective in its daily operations.

Duluth is set to begin its 8th collaboration with the Citizen’s Budget Review Advisory Committee on Feb. 20 for the FY2020 budget.

The first meeting establishes an overview of the city’s budget process and what the budget committee’s role will be in the process. All budget committee participants will be given the city’s current operating budget for FY2019 and 10 year forecast presentation.

The second meeting, held Feb. 27, involves a review of draft figures for the preliminary FY2020 budget, debt service commitments, city initiatives, as well as information relating to capital reserve funds.

The third meeting on March 6 is geared toward recommendations from the citizen’s committee, addressing any concerns with the budget, and finally discussion of visionary opportunities for the city.
