Complete Participatory Budgeting Results

Participatory budgeting ended Saturday and more than 1,000 people voted on where their taxpayer dollars should go.

Each voter selected five projects and we were able to fund the top six, for a total of $1.54 million. Melissa will place these projects in this upcoming year’s budget.

You can see the full breakdown of votes below and more information about the projects here. And remember, if your project didn’t make the cut, there’s always next year’s participatory budgeting. Alternatively, talk to our office and we might be able to help make it happen.
