Are you interested in learning more about the City’s FY17-18 budget? There are a few ways for you to get involved between now and adoption day on June 19, 2017.

  1. Take some time to read through the budget document. It’s available online at www.decaturga.com/budget. Or if you prefer to look at a hard copy, head over to the Decatur Library reference desk (215 Sycamore Street) or stop by the City Clerk’s Office (509 N. McDonough Street) to check one out.
  2. Attend a public hearing and let the City Commission know your thoughts on the budget and the 2017 millage rates. We have three public hearings scheduled in the coming weeks – Monday, June 12th at 6:00 p.m.; Monday, June 19th at 3:30 p.m.; Monday, June 19th at 7:30 p.m. All meetings will be held in the City Commission Meeting Room at Decatur City Hall (509 N. McDonough Street.)
  3. Let us know your thoughts via the Open City Hall forum. If attending a meeting at City Hall just doesn’t work for you, you can still let the City Commission know your thoughts by sharing them here.
  4. Watch the archived video of the City Commission work session focused on the FY16-17 revised budget and the FY17-18 proposed budget. An archived video of the session is now available on the City’s website.
