How would you prioritize funding for the City’s 2017/18 Mid-Year Budget Review?
The City of Fremont Mid-Year Budget Review, scheduled for early March, is an opportunity for City staff to update the City Council on Fiscal Year 2017/18 budget performance based on actual operating results through the end of December (fiscal years run between July 1 and June 30). Staff will present to the Council a brief review of national and local economic trends, discuss any revised General Fund revenue or expenditure projections for the current year, and provide a preliminary General Fund forecast for the next three years.
To the extent that one-time funds are available to address priority needs, the City Council may consider mid-year adjustments to the FY 2017/18 Adopted Operating Budget.
To assist the City Council in considering how best to allocate any available resources, the City of Fremont is asking for input from residents and other community stakeholders on how they rate the importance of investment in the following program/project categories. Please evaluate each category as either “high priority”, “normal priority”, or “low priority”.
- Social services grants to community organizations
- Downtown community center and plaza enhancements
- Online/mobile customer service system for residents and businesses
- Traffic safety improvements
- Parks/recreation facilities improvements
- General Fund operating reserves
