Session held in preparation for the upcoming Budget process In June

Louisville – Members of the Metro Council will participate in Budget 101 and CDBG 101 training sessions on Monday, March 30th. This is the first time these two areas of training have been held together in conjunction with upcoming budget process in June. The sessions have been organized by Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5), Chair of the Budget Committee and Councilman Kelly Downard (R-16) Vice Chair.

“We have many new members this year and I believe it is important that we make sure everyone is familiar with how the budget process operates,” says Hamilton.

These sessions are only intended to inform Council Members and Legislative Aides about the process, not to discuss any specifics of the City’s budget. Notice of these sessions is being released in order to comply with the requirements for public meeting notices due to the possibility of a quorum of Council Members in attendance.

CDBG 101, will be held Monday, March 30 at 2:00 in Chambers. Laura Grabowski, Acting Housing Director, will present an overview of CDBG and review the two forms needed to evaluate potential CDBG projects

Budget 101, will be held Monday, March 30 at 4:00 in the Metro Council Chambers (601 West Jefferson Street) Daniel Frockt, Acting CFO, will present an hour session on the basics of the Metro Budgets.
