Residents are invited to provide input on the Fiscal Year 2021-22 budget to help shape the future of the City of Irving. Below are a few of the public input opportunities available to Irving residents.
BUDGET 101 VIDEO SERIES
City of Irving staff members are deep in budget talks, and they invite residents to join the conversation. Staff and Irving Community Television Network (ICTN) produced a two-part budget video series. Topics include city operations, the tax rate, enterprise funds, debt service and capital projects.
Comments may be made to City Council online on any aspect of the budget, including programs, projects, rates, services and fees by emailing “Ask the Budget Fiscal Friends” at email@example.com. The BFFs will respond to all questions and post answers to the city’s budget web page. Submittals are subject to editing for content, tone and clarity.
PUBLIC HEARINGS AND ADOPTION
Two public hearings will be held on Sept. 2 and Sept. 9 for the proposed budget and tax rate following the budget retreat in August. Adoption of the budget is scheduled for Sept. 16, and the city’s budget year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.
Call the City Secretary’s Office at (972) 721-2493 to confirm public hearing dates.
