Now that City Manager Tom Bonfield has presented the FY 2015-2016 preliminary budget, Durham residents will get their chance to weigh in on what’s proposed, and how they would like to see the City’s budget used in the coming year.
The City’s third annual e-Town Hall will be held on Monday, June 1, at 7:30 p.m. during the regularly scheduled City Council meeting. Moderated by WRAL anchor and reporter Ken Smith, the e-Town Hall will be televised live on Durham Television Network (Time Warner Cable channel 8 or 97-5 and AT&T U-verse channel 99) as well as live-streamed from the City’s website.
City Council members will take part in the interactive event, addressing questions submitted by Durham taxpayers regarding how tax dollars are allocated in the proposed budget and what the priorities are for the upcoming year. Residents are encouraged to submit their questions in any of the following ways by Friday, May 29:
