Be a Part of the Budget Process in A2


Each year the City of Ann Arbor presents a budget to cover services provided to the citizens of Ann Arbor. This year the City wants all of us to be active participants in shaping the budget and they've developed a great web site, the Ann Arbor City Budget Guide to explain the process and the many components of the budget.

Most importantly, they want your feedback. Once you've reviewed the site, send email to the Finance Department at offering your suggestions and comments.
