One Philly Budget Town Hall Tour, Philadelphia Mayor Cherelle Parker

Philadelphia Mayor Cherelle Parker released her budget address to the City Council in March. She is now following it up with an ongoing community circuit to get public input. Called One Philly Budget Town Hall Tour, city officials, led by Parker, will make community visits to pitch and discuss the proposed $6.29 billion budget: $250 is allotted for trash pickup and repaving and $36 million each for housing projects and initiatives to prevent illegal dumping and other sources of blight. It does not include tax hikes, which should be a crowd-pleaser. The budget addresses the new mayor’s goal to make a “Safer, Cleaner, Greener Philadelphia.” The meetings are a chance “ to get involved with local government, connect with dozens of City, state, and federal agencies and service providers, and learn about free resources and services provided.” The results may be incorporated into a revised balanced budget before going back to the City Council for approval. Upcoming town hall meetings will be Wednesday, May 15, from 6 p.m. EST to 8 p.m. EST, at General A. George McCall Elementary and Middle School, 325 S. 7th St.; Tuesday, May 21, from 6 p.m. EST to 8 p.m. EST, at Christian Stronghold Baptist Church, 4701 Lancaster Ave., and Wednesday, May 22, from 6 p.m. EST to 8 p.m. EST, at Lincoln High School, 3201 Ryan Ave.; Wednesday, May 29, from 6 p.m. EST to 8 p.m. EST, at Deliverance Evangelistic Church, 2001 W Lehigh Ave. Not required, but share your ideas, listen to the mayor’s budget address, and sign up for town halls in advance.
