City of Boise Opens Online Survey to Learn Resident Priorities for FY2020 Budget

The City of Boise is planning its Fiscal Year 2020 budget proposal and wants to hear from residents about their top budget priorities around city services and neighborhood improvement projects.

An online survey at BoiseBudgetSurvey.com asks residents about their priorities for public safety, recreation, economic development and neighborhood improvements. A Spanish translation of the survey is also provided.

Feedback from the survey will be shared with Mayor David Bieter and the Boise City Council members to help inform the drafting of the FY2020 budget in the coming months.

In addition to this survey, there are several other opportunities for input:

  • End of January: Facebook Live Event
  • February 16: Boise Neighborhood Interactive budget workshop
  • February 21: Boise City Council Town Hall on the budget to give residents an opportunity to speak directly to the council on their budget priorities; 6-8 p.m., Bown Crossing Library
  • June 25: City council day-long budget workshop in the Maryanne Jordan City Council Chambers with all city departments to create the final budget draft; residents can submit comments to the council prior to the workshop at citycouncil@cityofboise.org

A final budget for the coming fiscal year, which begins on Oct. 1, is typically finalized and approved by the city council in August.
