  • Voting for the latest round of participatory budgeting grant funding is now open. We share how you can give your direct input on how to spend a portion of our city’s budget. 
  • We have some exciting news about our credit rating! The top three global credit rating agencies recently rated our limited obligation bonds AA+ and Aa1, as well as affirmed our AAA rated general obligation bonds.
  • Now that a pilot program to help support and learn from those most impacted by gun violence is ending, we and our partners are working to apply the lessons learned moving forward. We share some of those lessons from the Prescriptions for Repair program.
  • Green burials will now be allowed in City-owned cemeteries. That means that more natural, sustainable burials and internments will soon be able to take place at Beechwood and Maplewood cemeteries.
