Louisville --The public will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed FY 2013 - 2014 Capital and Operating Budgets on Thursday June 13th beginning at 5:30pm in the Council Chambers, 601 West Jefferson Street.
“The Budget Committee believes it is very important that we hear from the public when it comes to spending tax dollars for the coming year,” says Councilwoman Marianne Butler (D-15) who chairs the committee.
Signup for those wishing to address the Budget Committee begins at 4:30pm on the 3rd floor of City Hall. Speakers are called in order of signup and have up to three minutes to make comments. Written testimony can be turned in during the meeting and occasionally, speakers are asked questions by the Council.
The Committee is limiting one designated speaker for each non-profit group per signup. Only non-profits that applied for an external agency grant in March 2013 may speak.
Speakers may use the Sixth Street entrance to Historic City Hall.
