Mayor Landrieu to Hold Series of Community Meetings

posted Aug 17, 2013, 9:07 PM by UTNA Secretary

Mayor Mitch Landrieu has announced a series of community meetings in each council district to discuss 2014 budget priorities beginning with District C on Tuesday, August 13. These meetings are designed to gather input as part of the Budgeting for Outcomes process.

“We're committed to producing results for our citizens and sticking to our budgeting principles- cut smart, reorganize, and invest in the future,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu, “The community meetings allow citizens to tell us their priorities for the budget.”

The Budgeting for Outcomes process aims to produce a more citizen-driven budget and to ensure improved government performance and accountability. A national best practice, the Budgeting for Outcomes system encourages city agencies to invest public resources based on the end result the City wants to achieve.

The Mayor will host one meeting with the district councilmember in each council district. The Mayor and Councilmembers will be joined by Deputy Mayors, NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas, NOFD Superintendent Tim McConnell and department and agency heads.

All community meetings will start at 6:00 p.m. Prior to the meeting, from 5:30 -6:00 p.m., the City will host a Resource Center with representatives from several City departments and agencies. During that time, citizens will have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with various departments about programs, initiatives and specific concerns.
