In the coming weeks, the City of Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering and City Council will be knocking on doors to solicit resident input regarding City budget priorities for FY2013.  

In addition to the "walk about," several Councilmen will be available for budget conversation next Sunday.

“We made a commitment to transparency and accessibility. This is another way to advance our on-going dialogue with residents,” said Highland Park .  

Cameras were brought into budget workshops and Committee of the Whole meetings last year, so residents could watch the detailed policy discussions, even if they could not attend the meetings in person. In addition, residents have expanded opportunities to share their insights at neighborhood meetings, as well as through commission and task force participation.

and will also be available next Sunday, September 9 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in for budget conversation

All budget workshops are open to the public and available for viewing on the City website. The next budget workshop will be held at City Hall on September 10. The Budget will be formally presented on October 15 with further discussion on October 29 and a public hearing on November 12. Times and details can be found at www.cityhpil.com.

Mayor Rotering emphasized, “The budget is our most important policy statement about the past, present and future of our City.  While we won’t be able to get to every door, we want residents to know that ours is wide open.”
