A Process That Allows You to Decide How to Spend New York's Money
This brief video above describes the process where citizens come together for several brainstorming and review sessions. Proposals are developed and voted on. The projects that receive the most votes will be funded. Simple.
Want to participate? You are in luck. NYC's 6th District City Council member Helen Rosenthal will hold two sessions this month:
• Thursday, June 12, 6pm-8pm, at the West Side YMCA at 5 West 63rd Street
• Tuesday, June 17, 6pm-8pm, at Goddard Riverside at 593 Columbus Avenue at W. 88th Street
Take a look at the tally of results from other districts here to get a district-by-district idea of how the city's residents are prioritizing budget dollars.
