Budget in a Box is an activity designed for participants to facilitate their own small community discussion about the City of Austin’s services, performance, and budget. The activity consists of a literature mailer box, instructions, a DVD of the Budget Basics video, discussion materials, and comment cards.
After the group discusses and makes decisions about their preferences for spending on eight categories of City services, the facilitator will return the results sheet to the City. A Spanish language version is available for our Spanish-speaking residents. Residents are welcome to host their own meeting, attend a facilitated meeting discussed below, or participate in the online version.
