          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
