Upcoming Public Budget Briefings

The Mayor’s proposed FY 2011 budget has just been released and many of you, undoubtedly, have a lot of questions. The good news is that at least eight DC agencies have agreed to hold public briefings on their proposed FY 2011 budgets. These briefings are an opportunity for the public to hear from agency directors and agency staff about how programs and services will be impacted by the budget. It also will be an opportunity for the public to ask questions. All briefings are held before an agency’s budget oversight hearing will take place.

Below is a list of the locations, times, and dates for the scheduled budget briefings (some have already been sent to the FBC listserve by the event sponsors). Please note that some briefings ask for an RSVP and questions to be submitted in advance. That doesn’t mean you can’t ask questions at the briefing, but it helps give agency directors an idea of the types of questions people are interested in.
