City and Town Budgets: Your Input Matters!

City and Town Budgets: Your Input Matters!
Every year by mid-July, each of our Arizona cities and towns are required by law to adopt a balanced budget that is open to citizen input and participation.

Every resident can have a voice in deciding what the budget will be spent on and how it will be paid for in the months before it is adopted.

To help ensure your city or town residents understand the budget process and to foster increased resident participation, AZ Cities @ Work presents Your Input Matters!, a short and fun video primer on the city and town budget process, demonstrating why it is important for residents to get involved.
