Elizabeth Nelson's City Council Blog

I write a City Council newsletter with my summary of agenda items coming before City Council.

Sign up to receive it first via email, or read it here later on this blog. I also post my perspectives on how issues were resolved, and charts of how Council voted at each meeting. I post Ward 4 road construction news under "Construction", and other news that affects Ward 4 residents under the category "Ward 4 News". News that affects all city residents is posted under "City News".

City Launches Budget Priorities Online Community Survey

On Oct. 5, 2020, City Council approved engaging the professional services of The National Research Center to conduct a Priority Based Budgeting Survey for the City of Ann Arbor. The goal of the online-only community-wide survey aims to obtain meaningful and broad citizen input to assist staff and City Council members in developing the city’s fiscal years 2022 and 2023 budget and spending priorities. 

The city encourages all residents to share their insights and opinions about what they believe the city’s spending priorities should be. The online-only survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and is available in three languages. The deadline for input is Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2020. 

In accordance with City Charter, the City Administrator's recommended fiscal year 2022 budget will be submitted to City Council on April 19, 2021. Fiscal year 2022 runs from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022. City Council members can only adopt one fiscal year at a time even though the city plans for multi-year budgets. 

Results of the survey will be provided to City Council members in December and made available to the public via the city’s budget public process website:
