CITY SEEKS COMMUNITY INPUT ON 2018-2019 BUDGET

      The City of Moab is asking area citizens to weigh in as the Moab City Council begins reviewing the proposed budget for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. The City invites community members to try out an online tool that allows them to comment and even suggest changes to the draft budget.

      “The online tool is intended to more clearly explain where the City’s revenues come from and how spending is prioritized for the coming year,” said Moab City Manager David Everitt. “It also gives residents the opportunity to be more engaged in the city’s budgeting process.”

      The budget tool is available online at moab.abalancingact.com/budget.

      Using this tool, community members can manipulate a pie chart to show what the budget would look like if, for example, the city spends more money on parks and recreation, or reduces capital projects. A bar at the top of the page shows whether the model budget created by the user is balanced or has a deficit or surplus. Citizens can also submit their own preferred model budget to the City as a suggestion, or make comments on the proposed city budget.

      The City will hold a public hearing on the proposed 2018-2019 budget on May 8 at 7:15 p.m. at the Moab City Council chambers, 217 E. Center St.

      The Moab City Council will accept comments on the proposed budget until May 22, when the Council is scheduled to vote on the final budget. Comments may be emailed to city-council@moabcity.org or mailed or hand-delivered to Moab City Council, 217 E. Center St., Moab, UT 84532.

      To access the online budget tool visit moab.abalancingact.com/budget or click the “City Budget” button on the City of Moab website home page.
The community can also view the FY 2018-2019 Budget Presentation created by Moab City Manager David Everitt.
