Budget Allocator Tool

In line with Council’s strategic priority of Responsible Spending, this tool allows residents and businesses to engage with the 2017 Budget. The goals: improving understanding of how tax dollars are spent and demonstrating value for money.

The Budget Allocator Tool is an online engagement tool that let residents choose how to invest their tax dollars and leave comments about their choices. The tool includes major service areas in the tax based operating budget that impact the daily lives of residents and businesses.

For each service area, respondents have the option to “increase spending 5%”, “maintain existing spend”, or “decrease spending 5%.” Each option includes details about the associated service impacts.

Results and comments received by 11:59 p.m. (EDT) January 23, 2017 will be shared with Council as part of the 2017 Business Plan & Budget deliberations. City Council is scheduled to approve the 2017 Budget at a meeting on February 13.

It’s your City & your money, so tell us how you want your tax dollars spent with the interactive Budget Allocator Tool.
