KANSAS CITY – The City of Kansas City is hosting four public budget meetings to discuss the 2019-2020 annual budget.

In accordance with the City Charter, the City Manager prepares the budget considering the adopted five-year financial plan and transmits the budget to the Mayor and City Council on or before the second regular meeting of the City Council in February.

A date for a public hearing on the budget is set at the time the budget is reported to the City Council. This date must not be later than the second City Council meeting in March.

The Finance and Governance Committee of the City Council will hold at least one public hearing on the budget ordinance. The committee may hold other community forums to receive input on the proposed budget.

At the fourth meeting in March, the City Council adopts the annual budget. The budget ordinance requires a majority of affirmative votes.
