> Share Your Priorities - Without Leaving Home
> City's Online Budget Survey Available Until May 31 - Help the City of 
> Tallahassee develop the proposed Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14) budget without 
> leaving the comforts of your home or office. The City is seeking additional 
> input from citizens through an online budget survey. Citizen input, including 
> the results of the survey, will aid staff in crafting a balanced budget that 
> addresses the needs of the City's diverse communities, reflects shared 
> priorities and moves the City toward important goals.
> By completing the brief 14-question survey you can share your thoughts on a 
> range of topics from what City services you have used in the past six months 
> to your level of support on a variety of services and programs. Following the 
> budget questions, there are optional demographic questions. One survey per 
> person/computer will be accepted through May 31.
> The online survey was developed to compliment feedback garnered from citizens 
> at the three Community Budget Workshops held around Tallahassee in April. At 
> these workshops, citizens provided input on items similar to those on the 
> online survey and participated in a fun Tallahassee Twister game to learn 
> more about City functions.
> 'We have a history of including citizens in the budget process and have 
> worked this year to make it easy as well as fun,' said Heath Beach, manager 
> of the City's Office of Budget and Policy. 'From informative games at our 
> recent budget workshops to this quick and easy survey, we really want to hear 
> from our customers.'
> Information from the online survey and the public meetings will be summarized 
> and presented to the City Commission as part of the FY14 budget process. The 
> results will also be posted to Talgov.com as well as shared on the City's 
> Facebook and Twitter sites.
> Going through a similar process during the past two years has provided direct 
> results to participants. Based on feedback offered by citizens, the City 
> Commission allocated resources to high priorities such as a specific 
> initiative on small business retention and allocated $25,000 for community 
> gardens.
