What Makes NYC Run?

Category ::


Using the New York City Charter as a road map, ‘What Makes New York City Run?” describes the roles of elected officials and how they develop budgets, make land use decisions and provide city services. Most importantly, it explains how and where New Yorkers can play a role and effect change with links to access services, learn how the city is spending their money, and participate on community boards, watch council sessions or testify at public hearings.
