Residents of Chapel Hill attended a public forum Monday to hear the town’s ideas for this upcoming fiscal year, including the town's annual budget.
Kenneth C. Pennoyer, the director of business management, conducted a presentation explaining various projections and challenges to the budget.
The major forum topics were the annual budget, capital program, community development block grant, federal HOME program funding, housing capital funds program funding, public transportation grants, the downtown service district and potential legislative proposals.
Pennoyer explained each of these topics by focusing on the process and status. Each of these topics will help the council’s goals including nurturing the community, creating a place for everyone, supporting community prosperity and developing good and new spaces.
"As we get additional info through the budget process we hope to update those goals and hopefully we’ll have some give and take where those budget goals may change or be prioritized,” Pennoyer said.
