Facing a budget deficit, the city of Wilmington NC would like to have your input on the 2011 budget with a little challenge. To take the challenge you can visit www.cityofwilmingtonbudgetchallenge.com
How to take the Challenge:
1.) We’ve broken the budget into percentages, so your total budget will be $100, where $1 = 1% of the city’s budget. Example: Streets & Transportation represent approx. 10% of the city’s budget; so you’ll start out with $10 for Streets & Transportation.
2.) Give or take away dollars from each Service Area depending on where you believe the city’s priorities should and should not be.
3.) Your total budget does not have to equal $100. Example: If you want the city to spend 5% less, your total Expenses should equal $95. Your budget can also be more than $100.
4.) If you want more information about the components of each Service Area, click on the appropriate link in the second column, “What It Includes”.
5.) When you’re finished, click on “Submit”. The city will take your public input into consideration in looking at next year’s budget.
6.) That’s it! We appreciate your input and participation in your city government!
