The polls are open TODAY (Saturday, September 22nd) from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for the 49th Ward’s Participatory Budgeting Election. This is your chance to have a direct say on how a portion of your tax dollars will be spent next year in the 49th Ward.
Cast a vote for the percentage of the ward infrastructure budget you believe should be devoted exclusively to street and alley resurfacing and sidewalk repairs then vote for up to four of your favorite ward improvement proposals.
Your Community Representatives who developed the project proposals will be on hand with displays that explain their proposals in more detail and to answer your questions.
