A summary of the survey results and budget town hall feedback is available on the Chicago Office of Budget and Management’s website at Mayor Lightfoot will deliver the 2020 budget address before City Council on Wednesday, October 23.  The City Council is expected to vote on the 2020 budget ordinances on November 26th.
