Comment on proposed 2017 City budget at Nov. 30 public hearing

On Wednesday, Dec. 7, the City Council plans to approve the City’s 2017 budget. Before that happens, there are two public comment hearings you can attend to share your thoughts about the proposed budget and property taxes.  You can also share comments online at the City’s website.

The two public hearings are:

6:05 p.m. Nov. 30
Room 317, City Hall

6:05 p.m. Dec. 7
Room 317, City Hall

If you can't attend the Nov. 30 or Dec. 7 hearings, you can submit comments on the proposed budget online. All comments submitted online by 3 p.m. Dec. 6 will be entered into the public record and shared with the mayor and council members.

There are lots of ways you can learn about the City’s proposed 2017 budget. You can see the proposed budget on the Budget website. The proposed budget is also posted on the City’s Financial Transparency website, which provides an interactive search feature to access particular parts of the budget. Hennepin County has also mailed out truth in taxation forms to all property owners, who can also look up their property tax information online.

The City Council held a series of budget hearings as part of the budget approval process. Back-to-back rebroadcasts of those hearings will be on Minneapolis 14 (Comcast channels 14 and 799, CenturyLink channel 14) every weekend until a few days before the budget is approved on Dec. 7. This gives everyone the opportunity to learn more about the budget proposal and its potential impact in advance of the two public hearings. A schedule of the weekend budget hearings “marathon” is available at All of the budget hearings can also be watched online at
