This spring, Mayor Kenney will propose a budget to City Council for the coming fiscal year, which starts on July 1, 2022. Before the City drafts that proposal, we want to hear from Philadelphians about their priorities and preferences for how the City spends money on services like trash collection, anti-violence, public health, and more.

Join an upcoming virtual meeting to learn more about the City Budget and to share what you think the budget should include.

How to participate

Join Mayor Jim Kenney and members of his team to talk about the budget for next year at an online town hall meeting (also available by phone). We are looking for your ideas before the proposed budget is put together. We will cover how the city budget works and answer questions from community members.

Register for the virtual town hall on Thursday, January 27 at 6 p.m. or call 311 to register.

Live translation will be available in Spanish, Mandarin, French, & Vietnamese.
