District B Budget Meeting Recap

On Tuesday, August 9, the Mayor and Councilmember Head held the Budgeting for Outcomes community meeting for District B at the Dryades YMCA in Central City. The New Orleans Coalition on Open Governance (NOCOG) was there to record the meeting. NOCOG is committed to making more information available about the budget process, to communicate this information to the public in a way they can understand, and to facilitate resident input in the budget process.
