From an announcement:
Durham City Council is hosting a series of Coffee with Council meetings where residents can have an opportunity to provide input to council members on the upcoming 2009-2010 fiscal year budget.
In addition, for the first time this year will be a Citizen Engagement Workshop on the budget. The workshop is set for Monday, February 23, 2009, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Community Family Life and Recreation Center at Lyon Park, 1309 Halley St. The workshop is intended to engage citizens in conversation about City government’s budget priorities during these tight fiscal times.
This workshop is in addition to the Coffees with Council and will be more interactive. Space will be limited to the first 100 residents and reservations are required. Reserve a spot by contacting Mildred Rogers at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (919) 560-4111, ext. 284.
