City Invites Public to Guide City Budget Priorities via Online Survey

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.

City Schedules Public Meetings for Proposed El Paso Charter Amendments

The City of El Paso Ad Hoc Charter Advisory Committee will hold a series of public meetings for the community to ask questions, review and make recommendations on proposed City Charter Amendments for a special election planned to be called with the November 2018 general election.

Proposed amendments to the City Charter include (1) increasing salaries for Mayor and City Council members; (2) reducing the prohibitions on outside public employment for Mayor and City Council members; and (3) having the City of El Paso Internal Auditor report directly to Mayor and Council.

Amendments to the City Charter were last made in 2015.

The Ad Hoc Charter Advisory Committee consists of a group of citizens appointed by Mayor and Council assigned with the responsibility of reviewing the charter and recommending proposed revisions to Mayor and Council.

The City Charter is the equivalent of a local constitution. It governs the form and powers of the city and the general responsibilities of the legislative and administrative powers. The charter is a written instrument that creates and defines powers, rights and privileges for a specific jurisdiction.

It addresses topics such as the city’s corporate limits, organization of city government, terms of office, and functions of elected officials, election standards, budget adoption and personnel management (city administration).

Members of the public are invited to attend the open meetings. The meetings may also be seen on the City’s website; they will be streamed live online.  The current City charter is available by clicking on the City Charter tab of the City Clerk webpage.

The open meetings are scheduled on the following dates:

  • May 7, 6 p.m., Grandview Center, 3134 Jefferson
  • May 21, 6 p.m., Don Haskins Recreation Center, 7400 High Ridge
  • June 4, 6 p.m., Marty Robbins Recreation Center, 11620 Vista Del Sol
