Indianapolis - In an effort to increase public input on the budget, the Administration and Finance Committee is taking the August 28, 2007 budget hearing to the Butler-Tarkington Area.
The meeting will take place at Christian Theological Seminary at 1000 West 42nd Street at 5:00 pm. Because of construction, people who wish to attend the meeting will need to enter the front door of the building and the meeting will be held in the Shelton Auditorium. Shelton Auditorium and parking is located at the second entrance west of Haughy Avenue or the fourth entrance east of Michigan Road. Signs will be posted directing people to the auditorium entrance.
The following agencies are scheduled to present at the meeting: Information Services, the County Assessor, and the Township Assessors
“It is my hope that holding this meeting outside of the City-County Building will make it easier for people to attend,” said Joanne Sanders, chair of the committee. “Council Committees were created to serve as the vehicle to solicit public comment on ordinances and resolutions. Committee hearings provide us the time to consider public input before we go to a full vote of the Council” Sanders continued.
President Monroe Gray said, “I am glad that this meeting is being held outside of the City-County Building. This is yet another way to get people involved in the budget process.”
The final agenda for the meeting will be posted online at Indygov.org on Friday, August 24, 2007 Information is also available by phone at 327-4241.
