The town hall offers residents a chance to provide input on the 2023-24 fiscal year budget for the city of Dallas. Each City Council member is hosting a town hall for each district during the week of March 6, according to the city of Dallas website.
During Tuesday’s meeting, staff members from the city manager’s office will deliver a presentation on the upcoming budget and answer any questions while gathering feedback, said District 10 Council Member Adam McGough, who represents the Lake Highlands area, in an email.
“There’s little time between the presentation of the city manager’s recommended budget in August and its ratification in late September for council members and Dallas neighbors alike to review, digest and propose amendments to the city’s $4+ billion budget,” he said. “The purpose of this meeting is for residents to receive an overview of the FY 2023-24 budget earlier in the budget-development process”
The city’s current fiscal year budget, set at about $4.75 billion, was approved by Dallas City Council in September. The budget included a property tax rate cut by about 2.75 cents setting the rate at about 74.58 cents per $100 valuation, according to the budget.
