Community Engagement Budget Tool Returns
In January of this year the Town of Hinton was proud to release into the public, for the first time, an interactive budget engagement tool. The tool offered any Hintonite the opportunity to see a visual representation of where their tax dollars go, and a new way to share their feedback on how they’d like their taxes spent.
This input helped council make their budget decisions in budget 2017, and provided insight to administration.
Now, we’re relaunching the tool, kicking off in September rather than January. This new kickoff time offers more opportunities to use your feedback in a tangible way; instead of receiving your input after the budget is largely complete, your input will be received during the early budget planning stages for both admin and council decisions.
