There will be a meeting to discuss bringing participatory budgeting to the 50th Ward. It’s scheduled for Tuesday, June 7, from, 6:15 – 7:30 at the Northtown Library. The featured speaker is Tom Desmond, a member of the 49th Ward’s PB Leadership Team.
At that meeting, POWR (People of West Ridge) NFP, will present its petition for a nonbinding referendum to make the 50th Ward the ninth Ward in the City to include residents in decisions about the spending of menu money.
The referendum would be added to the November election ballot only in the 50th ward. Details can be found here.
Hope to see you at the meeting!
