TODAY - Get Involved in the City Budget
Generally speaking do you think we should have 3% cuts to the Community Services and Community Development Block Grants that provide childcare and neighborhood center support while not requiring the 3% cut from the police AND adding $1.5M for more officers?
Do you think when we talk about economic development we should be giving handouts to corporations or we should be creating a Madison Metro service that serves 2nd and 3rd shift workers?
You have a chance to give that kind of input TONIGHT!!!
