NEW YORK – On Wednesday, Feb. 15, Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer and the Manhattan Borough Board will hold a public hearing on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s preliminary city budget for the 2018 fiscal year.
Section 241 of the New York City Charter tasks each Borough Board with holding at least one public hearing on the mayor’s budget proposal as it develops its response and statement of priorities. These hearings are opportunities for local Community Board members, organizations, and members of the public to offer their own input, as well as an opportunity for the Borough Board to call upon officers of city agencies to appear and provide further information.
As Borough President, Brewer is chair of Manhattan’s Borough Board, which is comprised of the borough’s City Council members and Community Board chairs.
