Budgets reflect civic values and priorities. So, as food for thought, engaged citizens may wish to consider talking points like these:
- Do you have ideas for advancing the City’s bold sustainability goals? For public health and safety? For equity?
- City government strives to be increasingly user-friendly; do you have ideas for streamlining operations and enhancing services
- The next budget will be designed in part to boost the recovery from the pandemic. What particular investments will have the most impact?
What sort of quality-of-life investments you would like to see?
