Spokane Mayor David Condon and members of the City Council will host a series of discussions about the 2018 budget and the city’s new strategic plan to seek feedback to both, including a telephone town hall on Nov. 1.

Investments in public safety and streets, always top citizen priorities, are again important elements of the 2018 Program Budget, which is the first draft in the budgeting process. The Program Budget is the culmination of months of discussions with citizens about their priorities and city performance, and conversations with the City Council about where we need to invest to make Spokane safer, smarter and healthier.

“A few items still require more discussion with the Council in the coming weeks and the budget is still a draft, which is where we need your help,” Condon said.

Discussions will be held on:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 6 pm – Spokane Public Library, 906 W. Main in The Lens on the third floor.
  •   Mayor David Condon and Council President Ben Stuckart
  • Wednesday, Nov. 1 at 6 pm – A telephone town hall discussion. People can join toll free at 855-312-2107, live on Facebook @spokanecity, live on City Cable 5, or in person at City Hall in the Council Chambers, 808 W. Spokane Falls, lower level.
