Over the next 30 days, the City of Norfolk is reaching out to residents, employees, and others for ideas, concerns, and questions, as we develop the budget proposal that will be considered by City Council in April.
Looking at current revenues and expenses, the City will face a $32 million gap. Add in a projected $21 million gap in Norfolk Public Schools revenues and expenses, it is clear that Norfolk cannot pay for every existing service and program in future years.
To craft a budget, we need to better understand the priorities of the community, employees and civic leaders. We want you to bring your questions and suggestions to the table. Here’s how you can get engaged:
