Mayor John Hickenlooper today released the results of an online budget survey that asked residents to answer questions about priorities for City services.
The online budget survey was posted June 18 at www.denvergov.org. The City received more than 3,700 responses before the survey ended July 31. The results will be used by the City to help find savings now and to shape next year’s budget, which must be delivered to City Council by Sept. 15.
A letter from the mayor was posted with the survey results:
Dear Residents of Denver and City Employees,
These are extraordinary times in our City as we work hard to close a $120 million budget gap over the next 18 months. To help in that effort, we asked you earlier this summer to attend one of six community meetings held throughout Denver or to answer a series of questions online about your priorities for City services. Thousands of you responded and we are pleased today to share the results of the online budget survey.
We will use your responses to help us find savings now and to shape next year’s budget. Thank you for participating and caring so much about our community.
Mayor John Hickenlooper
