         The goal of the budgeting for outcomes process is to produce a more resident-driven budget and ensure process improvement and accountability of government performance. This national best practice is designed to enhance services and get a better return on investment of public dollars by encouraging City agencies to invest public resources based on the results residents and City leaders want to achieve. While traditional budgeting systems are hinged on incremental changes to the previous year’s level of effort, budgeting for outcomes ensures that all City budgets are funded based on how well they achieve residents’ priorities. This year, Spanish interpretation will be available for Spanish-speaking residents.

         Before the district meeting, City officials will also host a resource center from 5:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., located in the hallway outside the school’s 1st floor gymnasium, where residents may visit one-on-one with representatives from several City departments and agencies to address specific complaints and concerns. 

         The meeting will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m.
