You can follow the City’s 2013 budget process

As part of the City Council’s process of considering Mayor R.T. Rybak’s recommended 2013 City budget, Council members have held holding a series of budget hearings to hear directly from City departments about how the budget proposal will impact their operations.

These budget hearings were broadcast live and replayed on Minneapolis 79: the City’s cable channel (Comcast). Beginning Saturday, Nov. 10, the City is rebroadcasting all of these budget hearings back-to-back on Minneapolis 79 every weekend until the budget is approved on Wednesday, Dec. 12. This gives folks the opportunity to learn more about the budget proposal and its potential impact in advance of the two upcoming public hearings. A schedule of the weekend budget hearings “marathon” can be seen Nov. 1. You can also watch any of the budget hearings online.
