The City is inviting residents and businesses to help guide the community’s priorities for the next fiscal year by participating in its annual “Chime In” survey.
“Engaging the public early on in the budget process is a best management practice and it allows us to make investments that align with priorities identified by the community and with the City’s vision of having safe and beautiful neighborhoods, a vibrant regional economy, and exceptional recreational, cultural and educational opportunities,” Chief Financial Officer Robert Cortinas said.
Through the survey citizens are able advise City leaders which services are most meaningful to them.
“The survey is one of many public input opportunities afforded to the community during the budget development process,” city officials added, “If you want to influence how the City of El Paso prioritizes projects and services for Fiscal Year 2020 here is your chance.”
Last year’s survey results indicated the public wanted a greater emphasis on streets, parks and public safety.
The survey is available on the homepage of the City’s website.
The deadline to participate in the online survey is April 20, 2019.
