The City Council is in its fourth week of budget hearings for Fiscal Year 2019.

The City Council has reviewed the budgets for the Department of Neighborhood Development, the Department of Innovation and Technology, the Boston Public Libraries, and the Inspectional Services Department.

The City Council has also discussed various aspects of the Boston Public Schools Budget (BPS) including Social Emotional Learning and Wellness/Behavioral Health, Homeless Education Resource Network, Opportunity and Achievement Gap, Transportation, Safety, and much more.

This week, the City Council will examine Boston Centers for Youth and Families, Youth Engagement and Employment, the Public Works Department, and the Boston Public Health Commission.

For the first time last year, the City Council held a budget hearing strictly dedicated to hearing testimony from the public. Residents can look forward to this opportunity to share their thoughts again in June. Stay tuned for more information!
