Comment on proposed 2015 City budget at Nov. 18 public hearing or online

On Wednesday, Dec. 10, the City Council plans to approve the City’s 2015 budget. Before that happens, there are two public comment hearings that you can attend to share your thoughts about the proposed budget and property taxes. You can also share your comments using the form at the bottom of this page. The two public hearings are:

Nov. 18 at 6:05 p.m.
Room 317 of City Hall

Dec. 10 at 6:05 p.m.
Room 317 of City Hall

There are lots of ways to learn about the proposed 2015 budget. You can see the proposed budget on the City website. In addition, Hennepin County has mailed out Truth in Taxation forms, and property owners can also look up their information online.

To discuss the proposed budget, the City Council held a series of budget hearings. Back-to-back rebroadcasts of those hearings will be on Minneapolis 79 every weekend until a few days before the budget is approved on Dec. 10. This gives you the opportunity to learn more about the budget proposal and its potential impact in advance of the two public hearings. A schedule of the weekend budget hearings “marathon” is available at You can also watch any of the budget hearings online at

For folks who can't attend the Nov. 18 or Dec. 10 hearings, this year, residents can submit their comments on the proposed budget online. Below is a comment form. If you share your comments and submit the form by Dec. 9, your comments will be entered into the public record and shared with Council Members and Mayor Hodges.
