2020 Budget Engagement

Bring your valued voice to the table!


We hope you were able to join the discussion at a community forum hosted by City Commissions last month! Your feedback is valuable to each Commission as they form recommendations on City services and goals you value most for review by City leadership and the City Council. If you could not attend one of the March forums, we invite you to complete the community survey at the bottom of this page or attend a town hall with your Council District Representative. Town Hall information is as follows:

District 10 with Council Member Alter - Tuesday, April 30th at 6:30pm, Congregation Beth Israel

District 5 with Council Member Kitchen - Thursday, May 16th at 6:30pm, South Austin Senior Activity Center

District 4 with Council Member Casar - Monday, June 10th at 6:00pm, Gus Garcia Recreation Center
