Website home about our city

The City of Fort Collins is in the midst of our budgeting process for the 2015-16 budget. We are seeking your input on which Enhancement Offers (aka Budget Requests) you most support and which ones you least support.

This website will be available for citizens to submit their opinions through Monday June 30th. The opinions you provide will be summarized along with the input received at various community outreach events taking place around the City during the month of May. This information will be used by City staff as one of many inputs to help determine the Enhancement Offers that will be included in the City Manager's Recommended Budget which will be presented to City Council at the end of August. Please complete the required information at the bottom of this page to submit your response. You may provide feedback on the Enhancement Offers in all seven Strategic Outcomes. Information on the Ongoing Offers can be viewed by clicking on the Ongoing tab.
