The Worthington City Council has prioritized finding new and innovative ways to include more people in the budgeting process, especially those who are not able to attend the city’s budget hearings. This tool allows people to participate at their own pace, on their own schedule, in conjunction with the city’s traditional budget process.
Submissions into Balancing Act are compiled by the Finance Department and will be shared with the City Council, and department and city management, to help guide the budgeting process.
You can view videos, documents and other resources that explain the budget and process here on the Budget page of the City’s website.
You can submit any feedback via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
