Budget in a Box 2.0
Budget in a Box is an activity designed for participants to facilitate their own small-group discussions about the City of Austin's services, performance and budget. The activity consists of a mailer box, instructions, a DVD of the "Budget Basics" video, discussion
materials and comment cards. One box is designed for a group of 6-10 people and takes a little over an hour to complete. We are happy to send out as many boxes as people would like. More information is available at austintexas.gov/budgetbox.
After the group discusses and makes decisions about their preferences for spending in eight categories of City services, the facilitator will return the results sheet and comment cards to the City. That input will be gathered and presented to City Council in a Community Engagement Report.
