Through the Town's annual budget process, the Town Council makes decisions on the level and types of services provided to citizens with local, State and federal funds.
Adoption of a budget determines in many respects the level of resources to be available for Town services over the coming budget year. Normally, there are limited options for adding to the budget after it is adopted.
The budget process is one of the most important functions and responsibilities of the Council, and it is also a key opportunity for citizens? participation in Town government.
Citizens may make comments to the Mayor and Council by letter, fax, or e-mail at any time in the budget process. Please write to 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Chapel Hill, NC 27514 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
