The Mayor’s presentation follows three days of City Department budget presentations last week, which she considered as she prepared her full Fiscal Year 2018 budget proposal to be presented to the City Council.

Here are more key dates in the Fiscal Year 2018 budget process:

  • Budget Work Sessions for City Council: May 30th, June 8th, June 12th.
  • Special Session Public Hearing and First Reading: June 15th.
  • Special Session Second Reading: June 19th.

Beginning with her first budget in 2011, Mayor McMillan has made citizen engagement in the process a priority.

“I believe an open budget process is critical to good government,” Mayor McMillan said. “It’s important that members of the public know and understand how their tax dollars are being spent, and to see how City Government makes choices and follows through to meet priorities.”

Mayor McMillan’s recorded presentation may be viewed on the City’s website at www.cityofclarksville.com.

Video recordings of her presentation and of last week’s City Department presentations also will be available for on-demand viewing on the website.
