The 2012 Budget process has begun! The City kicked off the process with a City-wide budget training session for City staff on April 4th and City Council presentation about the 2012 budget on April 19th. You now can find the entire budget calendar online.
The budget division is looking for ways to engage Olathe citizens in the budget process. In the past we have hosted public meetings in the evening and started an online Budget forum.
This year we’re considering hosting “E-Town Hall” sessions, in which citizens could watch a budget presentation from home and comment online, or submit questions before the meeting to be discussed at the meeting. Does this sound like a good option, or do you have other ideas? If you have thoughts or ideas about this, please email them to us or visit the City’s Facebook or Twitter pages. You can also comment on the Budget Forum.
