As preparations begin to develop the FY 2016-17 budget, citizen input is again needed. The Municipal Budget Office has posted an open topic questionnaire titled “Community Priorities for Upcoming Budget Cycle” online at www.tempe.gov/forum. Tempe Forum is an online program to solicit citizen input and feedback on various community related topics. This is your opportunity to emphasize which City programs and services are most important to you. In this forum, you are asked to pick which services you would prioritize by spending a “theoretical” $100 among the services listed. You can distribute the funds evenly, or you can spend all your ‘money’ in one area. In addition, you may add comments about the questionnaire or city services.
The forum will assist City Officials in gauging public interest and priorities as they begin preparing the FY 2016-17 budget. Tempe Forum continues the City’s efforts to expand its online presence to provide more opportunities for citizen interaction and engagement.
