On April 12th at 2:00 PM, you are invited to join the DC Environmental Network (DCEN), DC Fiscal Policy Institute (DCFPI), and DC Department of Public Works (DPW), for a special briefing on Mayor Bowser’s proposed FY2018 Budget. This event will be held at the offices of DPW, 2000 14th Street NW, 6th Floor.


Mayor Bowser is scheduled to release her “proposed” budget sometime around April 4th. At this April 12th briefing, DPW Director Chris Shorter and staff, will present the details of Mayor Bowser’s budget as it relates to the Department of Public Works. Participants will be able to ask questions and share their thoughts about the Executive’s budget priorities for this agency.

Although we will hear about the full DPW budget, the DC Environmental Network is particularly interested in the DPW programs that focus on zero waste issues.

The next few years could be very challenging as the new President and Congress establish their own budget priorities. Federal cuts to important District programs could create budgetary pressures that hurt every District agency and threaten important initiatives that fund basic human needs and are important to the sustainability community.It will be critical for all of us to understand our current budget and how it might change as we move forward. Hope to see you on the 12th.
