City Council fields questions - and some tweets - from Atlantans tonight at 'virtual town hall meeting'

As the Atlanta City Council continues to vet the city's 2014 fiscal year budget, they'll take a break to field questions from concerned and curious Atlantans at tonight's joint public hearing and "virtual town hall meeting."

The meeting will take place at City Hall around 6 p.m. and will open the floor to residents to grill councilmembers about Mayor Kasim Reed's proposed $539 million spending plan. The budget currently under consideration would provide cash for, among other things, a 2,000-officer force for the Atlanta Police, the city's soon-to-be-launched 311 call center, and an "open data portal."

If you can't make it to the meeting, you can also submit questions in three others ways: email, call 404-330-6309, or tweet to @ATLCouncil using the #atlbudget hash tag.

We've also embedded a widget that includes the #atlbudget Twitter feed and a copy of the mayor's intitial FY 2014 budget. Check both of those out after the jump:
