Balance the City’s budget – online

Try your hand at balancing the City’s 2010 budget with a special online application that replicates the popular tabletop exercise from June’s budget town halls.

The application lets users review a list of proposed budget savings or revenue enhancements, accept or decline the option and then submit a proposal. The goal is to generate $9.3 million in savings and balance the 2010 budget. Options are based on actual cost savings being considered by City management.

Proposals will be compiled in a report and reviewed by the City’s Budget Office and City Management.

A PDF report on FY10 Stakeholder Input is available now on the City of Austin Budget Web site.
