Local government | September 23, 2019
The online budget allocator lets residents test different spending options for a range of City services including recreation, library, transit, fire and emergency services and more by increasing or decreasing the budget for each service area all while maintaining a balanced budget.
Results received from the allocator by October 18, 2019 will be shared with Budget Committee on November 18, 2019. The results will help inform the committee’s review of the proposed 2020 Business Plan and Budget.
“The budget allocator is a hands-on way for residents to learn more about what City services cost, how property tax dollars are spent and to tell us about how they want us to invest their tax dollars,”
says Jeff Jackson, Director of Finance and Treasurer. “It is an opportunity for residents to think about the City’s service levels and spending and to share what is important to them. It also provides the opportunity for people to get involved in and learn more about the City’s business planning and budgeting process.”
