Parks and trails, or street maintenance?
A city's budget is one of the most conspicuous ways that a community can express what is important to them. Should the emphasis be parks and trails? Streets and infrastructure? Police? Economic development? If the answer is yes to all, then how will the city pay for it?

For the 2017 budget process, the city is introducing an online tool that lets YOU create and submit a budget based on what matters to you. It lets you to allocate funds — expressing your priorities and preferences — but also requires you to balance your spending with adequate revenue sources.
