All sessions are scheduled to take place in the boardroom at Garden City Village Hall, 351 Stewart Avenue.

  • Saturday, Feb. 8 at 8:30 a.m.: Facilities Tour and Capital Presentation (Location to be determined)

Trustee Richard Silver, finance chair, said this year's goal is to make documents publicly available on the village website prior to these meetings to enable residents to "follow along in a more helpful way."

"An executive summary will provide a high level review of the budget process," he said.

Deputy mayor Nick Episcopia added that this year's process will reduce the "granular" work. "I think the process was healthy but it got really granular going over item after item," he said of past budget processes.
