Residents are invited to provide input on the Fiscal Year 2017-18 budget to help shape the future of the City of Irving. Below are a few of the public input opportunities available to Irving residents.
Residents provided input on the budget during public hearings held earlier this year. Additional comments may be made to the city council online on any aspect of the budget including programs, projects, rates and fees using the “Ask the Budget Guy” feature at CityofIrving.org. The service offers taxpayers accurate information regarding financial matters and direct access to the “Budget Guy.”
Irving City Council’s Budget Retreat is set for Aug. 23-24. The Budget Retreat will be televised on ICTN 2 (AT&T U-verse 99, ICTN.tv, Charter Communications Channel 95, and Frontier Channel 31).
Residents can ask the “Budget Guy” questions regarding the FY 2017-18 budget by sending an email to AsktheBudgetGuy@cityofirving.org. The “Budget Guy” will respond to all questions and post answers to the city’s “Ask the Budget Guy” web page. Submittals are subject to editing for content, tone and clarity. Adoption of the budget is scheduled for Sept. 21.
