The League of Women Voters of Billings and the Billings Public Library invite the public to attend a series of four events in July to help the public get a basic understanding of how our city government works and how to get involved.
Facilitated by the League of Women Voters, the first three presentations will take place at the Billings Public Library Community Room with the final social event at This House of Books. All presentations are free and open to the public.
• Thursday, July 11th, 5:30-7:30 pm – How do we pay for everything and who decides? This will focus largely on the city budget, Tax Increment Financing (TIF) and discussion on One Big Sky funding.
• Wednesday, July 17th, 5:30-7:30 pm – What are the rules? This will focus on the planning process, zoning codes and the city/county interaction.
• Wednesday, July 24th, 5:30-7:30 pm – How can I have a voice? This will focus on the various ways the public can get involved: City Council, public hearings, task forces, and citizen advisory boards.
• Wednesday, July 31st, 5:30-7:30 pm – Drinks & Nibbles. Mix, mingle, and share what we’ve learned at This House of Books. Sign up for ways to learn more.
