Up Next: Listening Tours* – June 24 and July 26
You’ve got stuff to say, our City Manager is here to hear it. You may have read the recent opinion piece in DMM about Tim Riordan’s listening tour. The City has worked with local YP groups to put together two sessions specific to the needs of YPs. There are opportunities to be heard at presentations on the City of Dayton’s finances by Tim Riordan, City Manager.
*City of Dayton officials have embarked on a “Listening Tour” of neighborhood and community groups to get their feedback and suggestions about Dayton’s financial future. City Manager Tim Riordan said he wants to hear the community’s ideas on how to address what is really a “structural deficit” — a fundamental imbalance between the City’s revenues and expenses.The community input will be used to develop a more comprehensive approach to create long-term financial stability. The options to be considered range from cutting expenditures by reducing/eliminating services; reducing or eliminating community and equipment investments; raising new or expanding revenue sources; or some blend of each.The Dayton Urban League Young Professionals, Generation Dayton, updayton, and many other YP organizations across the region are all encouraging their members to be a part of these conversations – don’t miss out – all YPs are invited.
