Ald. Dodd encourages residents to take the City’s Budget Priority Survey
As the City of Milwaukee prepares to discuss the 2021 City budget, residents are being encouraged to share their thoughts on spending priorities. The City’s Budget and Management Division has created the Budget Priority Survey to allow residents more input in the budget process. Alderwoman Nikiya Dodd is calling on residents to take this survey so their voices can be heard.
The Budget Priority Survey is a short, 5-minute survey asking residents several questions that will help City leaders understand residents’ budget preferences and priorities. The survey is available in English, Spanish and Hmong and responses are being collected until Monday, September 21st. The survey can be accessed by visiting https://budgetpriority.questionpro.com/.
The City has also created the Balancing Act budget simulation tool. This simple to use, interactive online platform allows residents to develop their own City of Milwaukee 2021 budget. To balance the budget, residents can adjust revenues and expenses for City departments. The Balancing Act budget simulation can be found at https://citymilwaukee_wi.abalancingact.com/2021-budget-simulation.
