Frisco invites citizens to comment about 2015 draft budget
Beginning Friday, Sept. 19, the town of Frisco is asking citizens to provide feedback on the proposed 2015 budget by utilizing the online platform http://www.EngageFrisco.com.
EngageFrisco will have information on specific policy questions, which are presented to the Frisco Town Council as part of the 2015 budget, and will then offer an opportunity for residents to convey their feedback immediately online. Residents will be able to express support or lack of support for town policies and will have the option to pose questions and provide comments on specific town directives.
“The Town of Frisco weathered the economic storms of the past five years by being conservative in our budgeting and we continue with this conservative approach to budgeting during fiscally healthy years because this tactic has allowed us to keep up with vital services and infrastructure improvements over the span of all economic conditions,” said finance director Bonnie Moinet in a town of Frisco news release. “At the end of the day, our core budgeting mission is to serve the best interests of the community by maintaining the quality of life in Frisco.”
The objective of EngageFrisco is to allow for more public participation in town of Frisco government, starting with the budget, and to create a greater level of transparency. The window to provide feedback on the 2015 budget is from Sept. 19 through Sept. 21.
The Frisco Town Council will discuss the 2015 budget on Tuesday, Sept. 23, beginning with a town council lunch from noon to 1 p.m. A budget work session will begin at 1 p.m.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
