Focused Dialogue for Tuesday, March 18 - Postponed

The focused dialogue centered on the 2014-15 budget, and scheduled for Tuesday, March 18, has been postponed.

This is an important and necessary community conversation. The inclement weather, coupled with the potential for a decreased turnout, led to the decision to reschedule to a date when participation will be more feasible. A new date will be determined and posted soon.
