St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter hosts community budget series

St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter has announced a series of events leading up to his 2019 Budget Address next month. Led by the Office of Financial Services, the “Our City, Our Budget” series is designed to give residents an understanding of the city’s budget process and how they can help shape 2019 budget priorities.

The seven-event series will take place July 13-29 at community businesses throughout St. Paul and will feature games and activities to promote discussion and gather community input.

“How we budget and spend our money is our clearest and most important opportunity to demonstrate what we value as a community,” said Mayor Carter. “I invite everyone to join the conversation and help shape the City’s 2019 budget as we move forward together.”
