Budgeting for Outcomes - Prioritize Your Tax Dollars

 

The City of Fort Collins is working on the biennial 2019-20 budget and there are several ways for you to participate and learn more. Budgeting for Outcomes is a community budgeting process that takes into account data, results and public engagement to create a budget that is responsive and reflective to the needs of Fort Collins. 

All City departments put forth Offers, or budget requests, for funding. This includes everything from building maintenance and overall department costs to trail development and new technology so everything, both new and old, is reviewed. 

Have a say in how your tax dollars are spent.
