Getting Involved - Your Input Matters!
Every year by mid-July, each Arizona city and town is required by law to adopt a balanced budget that is open to citizen input and participation. Annually, before the budget is adopted, residents are given the opportunity to provide input into determining what is important in their community and how much they are willing to pay for services they choose.
Learn more about municipal budgets in this Arizona Cities@Work video. Remember, your input matters!
