January Meeting Recap: Guest speaker Bertha Johnson, Director of the Department of Budget & Management Services for the City of Durham presented an overview of the 2015-2016 budget development and oversight process; specifically, how the budget is developed, sources of revenue for the City of Durham, and the services and programs funded by the City of Durham. There is a projected $6.1 million dollar gap going into the budget process. Ms. Johnson reviewed options for raising revenue (ex: improving property values) and some of the competing funding needs. She also reviewed differences between the city and county budgets. She emphasized that Coffee with Council should be an opportunity to talk about community priorities rather than focus on individual issues or staff.
