Iowa City's City Council invites the community to join members for its first ever 'Breakfast on a Budget' to kick-off the City's budget process. 

Join the City Council and staff for a light breakfast this Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018, at City Hall, 410 E. Washington St. A meet and greet will take place from 7:30 to 8 a.m. where Council members will be available for questions about the budget over coffee, juice, bagels and donuts. The public is encouraged to stay for a budget overview provided the City Manager’s Office to learn more about this year's budget and how it impacts Iowa City. 

The Council's 'Breakfast on a Budget' will begin the City's annual budget process and continue with two informational work sessions to review the proposed budget. The public is welcome to attend. Sessions will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6. and from 1 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 9, both at City Hall. These sessions are information presentations on City staff’s budget recommendations to the City Council. Formal public comment opportunities will occur later in January and February as budget deliberations advance.

If you can't make it to breakfast, or either of the sessions, you can watch the morning portion of the Saturday meeting and the entire Tuesday meeting live online, replayed on City Channel 4 and archived at
