Priority Based Budgeting
Help us put your tax dollars to work!
Your opinion matters so play our budget game to give your input!
The cost and demand for City services is a difficult challenge every year. Priority Based Budgeting (PBB) is a unique and innovative approach to match available resources with community priorities. Your input is important in helping us to identify where your tax dollars should be spent. Using the results from this game, the City intends to review future budget allocations based on which programs most directly and efficiently achieve the community’s priorities.
