The following is a news release from the city of Idaho Falls.
IDAHO FALLS — With budget season quickly approaching, Idaho Falls Mayor Rebecca Casper and City Council members invite the public to attend the Budget Watch Open House on Tuesday, May 3, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Idaho Falls Library, 457 W. Broadway.
There will not be a formal presentation, but rather a chance to visit with Mayor Casper and City Council members. City leaders encourage residents to bring the entire family to learn more about our local government, meet city staff members and take the opportunity to engage in discussions about upcoming projects and budgets.
“We are very anxious to hear what the citizens’ priorities are for this budget season,” states Mayor Casper. “Water conservation, snow removal, recreational opportunities, and facility improvements – all topics are on the table for discussion. If you’ve ever had concerns or questions about how your tax dollars are spent, this is a great opportunity to dialogue with city leadership,” adds Casper.
Officials from Parks & Recreation, Idaho Falls Regional Airport, Idaho Falls Power, Public Works, Community Development Services, Idaho Falls Fire Department, Idaho Falls Police Department, Idaho Falls Library and Municipal Services will also be available for questions.
The meeting is open to the public.
If citizens are not able to attend the open house but would like to ask a question or offer feedback, they are encouraged to go to the homepage of the city’s website and click on the Citizen Request tab at the top of the page or call (208) 612-8235.
