City and county approve budgets



City and county approve budgets

The city and county each approved budgets for the 2017-2018 fiscal years. The Alliance provided feedback thanking both leaders for their prioritization of revenues for housing and homelessness. The Alliance advocated for a number of other budget items that would support economic growth, livability, and public safety in the city and county. This included successfully advocating for the Downtown Marketing Initiative (DMI), the public-private partnership that works to promote downtown and the SmartPark garages.
