The city of Prairie Village is starting the annual months-long process to adopt next year’s budget.

And the 2024 budget season has begun with a bit of an oddity.

City Finance Director Jason Hannaman told the city council committee of the whole on Monday that no decision packages — that is, special budget requests, which can come from city councilmembers or staff — were submitted for review this year.
