Neighbors have been questioning the Mayor's roll out of the Executive Order on July 13, cutting formal ties with the City and District Councils/CNC and how such a top down approach was supported and are calling FOR A MORE COLLABORATIVE DISCUSSION WITH DISTRICT COUNCILS, CNC, CITY COUNCIL, DoN AND THE MAYOR'S OFFICE OVER THE NEXT YEAR to work together on this issue.

===================================

SEPTEMBER 26 - Mayor Transmits his budget proposal to City Council 

NOTABLE CITY BUDGET PROCESS CHANGES 

You may already know -- The October 11 deadline for Councilmember requests is earlier than previous years’ late October deadline. However, this year a single Councilmember can bring issues forward during the budget process; in previous years, three Councilmembers needed to sponsor a proposal for it to appear on the agenda.

If Councilmembers identify additional items after the October 11 deadline, they can still discuss those additional items during theOctober 17-19 Budget Committee Deliberations, but they won’t be included in the Central Staff memos. (See link on attached notice...)

 Thank you,

City Neighborhood Council
