City Hall seeking budget feedback with upcoming public hearings

Northeast News

September 14, 2016

KANSAS CITY, Missouri – With the City of Kansas City, Missouri’s Five-Year Citywide Business Plan set to be adopted by November 1, 2016, the public has been invited to a series of work sessions designed to provide budget feedback.

Kansas City Council members will use the feedback to help shape citywide objectives over the next five years. The community forums are expected to be interactive in nature, eschewing formal presentations by city staff in favor of providing more time for the public to express their opinions. The forums will include a “Pick Your Priorities” game that asks attendees to decide the best ways to allocate resources, focus groups featuring a variety of important citywide topics, access to department directors and other knowledgeable city employees who can answer specific questions, and the opportunity for the public to record a 30-second message about their views that will be passed along to the City Council.

The first work session was held on Tuesday, September 13 in the Northland. Further meetings will be conducted on Thursday, September 22 from 6:-00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Avila University’s (11901 Wornall Rd.) Whitfield Conference Room, on Saturday, October 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Mohart Multipurpose Center (3200 Wayne), and on Thursday, October 6 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Kansas City Health Department’s (2400 Troost Ave.) Multipurpose Room.

Interesting in attending one of the sessions? The public is encouraged to RSVP in advance to reserve their seats by emailing finance@kcmo.org or calling 816-513-1173.
