On July 15th, the City Manager delivered to City Council the FY 2016-2017 Proposed Operating Budget for the City of Gulfport. The budget will be formally adopted on September 30, 2016. Within the 268 pages, decisions will be made on how best to balance anticipated income with expenses. For discussion purposes and ease of review, I created a “summary fact sheet” to help explain budget priorities, commitments, concerns, issues, etc.
I invite you to take a look at the draft budget, ask questions, and share your ideas with me. I am available on Mondays, 11:30 A.M., at the City Hall Council Office (my office hour). I can also arrange another meeting time that best suits your schedule. Please feel free to send me questions, or request a copy of the fact sheet, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
