FROM THE DESK OF COUNCILMEMBER JARED C. BROSSETT

The next two months are going to be a busy time. There is a lot on the agenda for the City Council when it comes to shaping the future of New Orleans, and, as fate would have it, I will be a major player in this process.

2020 OPERATING AND CAPITAL BUDGETS

As chair of the City Council’s Budget Committee I will be working with Mayor LaToya Cantrell on the 2020 Operating and Capital Budgets. In anticipation of the Mayor’s budget on October 17th, the Council has prepared a hearing schedule that will allow a robust budget review process. Budget hearings will begin on Monday, October 28th through Friday, November 1st and will continue on Monday, November 11th through Friday, November 15th. Hearings will begin at 9 a.m. each day. During the 2020 budget review process, I am committed to working with Mayor Cantrell and my colleagues to ensure that we allocate the City’s limited resources to the operating, capital, and quality of life priorities that best meet the needs our citizens want addressed.
