Last night, about 25 Budget Delegates attended a "speed consulting" session with City staff in the Sullivan Chamber at City Hall.
Representatives from the following departments/programs met with Delegates and offered insight into City planning processes to help Delegates with their research: Commission for Persons with Disabilities, Community Development, Conservation Commission, Electrical, Human Services, Library, Open Data, Public Works, Recreation, and Traffic, Parking & Transportation.
Budget Delegates will meet four more times with their committees and one more time with the departments (in a second speed consulting session in early October) to narrow down their idea lists and develop final proposals for the PB ballot. Their goal is to hand in a proposal shortlist by October 23 for the City Manager to review.
Stay tuned for more updates!
