Spokane Mayor David Condon will host a community conversation on 2020 City budget on Wednesday, Sept. 18, from 6 to 7 p.m. Citizens are invited to join the discussion and offer feedback.

Residents will be contacted using technology that allows the City to call thousands of people to ask if they want to participate in the meeting; some citizens will receive a text message in advance of the conversation asking if they want to participate. Citizens can also opt into the meeting by calling 877.353.4701 between 6 and 6:45 p.m. The Mayor will be joined by members of his senior leadership team, responding to question that are important to the community.

“The goal of the Telephone Town Hall is to make it easy for people to join these important conversations when and where it’s most convenient for them,” says Mayor Condon.

Citizens who prefer to participate in person can come to the City Council Chambers at City Hall on Sept. 18 to join the discussion live. People can also participate in the community conversation on social media @spokanecity on Twitter and Facebook.
