WHEREAS, pursuant to the Metropolitan Charter, the Mayor is required to submit a proposed operating budget for the Metropolitan Government for the next fiscal year not later than May 25th; and
WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Council traditionally adopts a substitute operating budget in lieu of the Mayor's proposed budget prior to July 1st of the next fiscal year; and
WHEREAS, the Department of Finance has made great strides in making information about the operating budget for the Metropolitan Government easily accessible through the Nashville.gov website; and
WHEREAS, although the budget information is readily available online, many citizens of Nashville and Davidson County do not have access to a computer, or have difficultly locating information electronically; and
