Register: Priority Based Budgeting Workshop
ELGL is excited to be involved in the upcoming Center for Priority Based Budgeting workshop with the Michigan Municipal League on February 25. ELGL members will share information on our growing presence in the Mitten State. We’ll also have book giveaways and drawings for free ELGL membership.
Priority Based Budgeting is a unique and innovative approach being used by local governments across the Country to match available resources with community priorities, provide information to elected officials that lead to better informed decisions, meaningfully engage citizens in the budgeting process and, finally, escape the traditional routine of basing “new” budgets on revisions to the “old” budget. This holistic approach helps to provide elected officials and other decision-makers with a “new lens” through which to frame better-informed financial and budgeting decisions and helps ensure that a community is able to identify and preserve those programs and services that are most highly valued.
