Editor's Note: The following is a City of Kirkland press release.
KIRKLAND, Wash. – The City of Kirkland is starting a new way to inform the public as City leaders progress through the biennial budget process. “Budget Bylines” will focus primarily on the potential effect City Council decisions will have on the City’s services. The first of these articles is now available at www.kirklandwa.gov/budgetbylines.
“This new communications tool aims to be timely, comprehensive and readable about a very complex topic,” notes Marilynne Beard, Assistant City Manager. “Its purpose is to make the Budget more accessible to more people.” “Budget Bylines” will be published and distributed by the Friday following a City Council meeting. The City Council typically meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month.
