Mayor Landrieu and Councilmember Brossett: District D Community Meeting

MAYOR LANDRIEU AND COUNCILMEMBER BROSSETT TO HOLD DISTRICT D COMMUNITY MEETING

NEW ORLEANS– On Mon., July 13, 2015, Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Councilmember Jared Brossett will host a community meeting in City Council District D to discuss budget priorities as the City begins its 2016 budgeting for outcomes process. Other City officials attending include deputy mayors, New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) Superintendent Michael Harrison, New Orleans Fire Department (NOFD) 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 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. While traditional budgeting systems are hinged on incremental changes to the previous year’s level of effort, budgeting for outcomes ensures that all City budgets are funded based on how well they achieve residents’ priorities. This year, Spanish interpretation will be available for Spanish-speaking residents.

Before the district meeting, City officials will also host a resource center from 5:30 – 6:00 p.m. where residents may visit one-on-one with representatives from several City departments and agencies to address specific complaints and concerns. The meeting will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. Residents who cannot attend community meetings are invited to share their comments and input by sending e-mail to mayor@nola.gov
