Citizen Engagement in Local Government Finance

Friday, October 12, 2018
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
VIA Zoom

 Please join us for a WEBINAR on Friday, October 12, 2018 from 2:00 – 3:30 pm to learn about Citizen Engagement in Local Government Finance. 

What should citizen participation look like?

Ms. Leslie Beauregard, Assistant City Manager, City of Charlottesville and Mr. Anthony Romanello, Deputy County Manager, Henrico County will discuss the ways their respective localities have engaged citizens in the budget process. 

Starting with the FY 2018 budget process, the City of Charlottesville started to use a new community engagement tool called Balancing Act.  Leslie will talk about how the City has used the budget balancing tool in addition to the other engagement opportunities already in place, and how it has influenced the annual budget process for the past two cycles.  

In November 2016 bond, Henrico voters resoundingly approved bond referenda totaling $420 million.  Anthony will tell the story of Henrico’s community engagement efforts leading to voter approval of schools, parks & recreation, fire, library, and road projects.

 

  There is a $25 fee for the Webinar.  1.5 CPE credits will be earned.  Please use the registration link below to register:
