CB6 Participation in the City Budget Process

Each year, Community Boards in each borough put together sets of requests for each agency as part of the Agency Budget Consultations run by the Office of Management and Budget.  With the coordination of the Budget and Governmental Affairs Committee, Committee Chairs and the office staff, Board members are encouraged to provide their input on agency funding.  Below are resources from the Borough Budget Consultations, which include agency responses to questions posed by community boards, and notes from agency presentations taken by OMB staff for Fiscal Year 2017.
