Let's face it: This year's city budget just hasn't pissed people off the way the old ones did.
After years of recession-era budget cuts, Colorado Springs is actually adding things back. But there's bound to be someone who's unhappy with the budget because, well, there always is. If you happen to be that unhappy person, there is an opportunity for you to be heard. The city's annual public budget meeting will be held Thursday, Oct. 18. Details below.
