Budget Engagement

Every year, city staff work to develop a balanced budget. Community input is vital during this annual process. Staff employ a variety of outreach tools to learn your priorities. 

In 2023, City staff developed a Budget Presentation (PDF) and a fun new tool called the Budget Bracket Challenge! 

Have you ever completed a basketball bracket during March Madness? Then you already know how to play! For each random pairing, choose the program in which you would prefer to add funding if it is available. The selected program moves automatically to the next round.

City officials gain insight into your priorities by reviewing the programs that come out on top.
