NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans residents will have a chance to give their input on budget priorities in a series of public meetings that begins July 13.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu and the New Orleans City Council will host the meetings as the City begins its 2016 “budgeting for outcomes” process. Other city officials attending will include deputy mayors, New Orleans Police Department  Superintendent Michael Harrison, New Orleans Fire Department Superintendent Tim McConnell and other department and agency leaders.

“The goal of the budgeting for outcomes process is to produce a more resident-driven budget and ensure process improvement and accountability of our government performance. This national best practice is designed to enhance services and get a better return on investment of public dollars by encouraging City agencies to invest public resources based on the results residents and City leaders want to achieve,” according to a city news release.

Before each district meeting, city officials will also host a resource center from 5:30 – 6:00 p.m. where residents can visit one-on-one with representatives from several city departments and agencies to address specific complaints and concerns. 

Residents who cannot attend the meetings are invited to share their comments and input by sending e-mail to mayor@nola.gov.
