Budgeting for Outcomes - Prioritize Your Tax Dollars

People pay taxes almost everywhere but not everywhere asks people how those taxes should be spent. 2018 is a budget year which means it’s time for you to tell us about your priorities, needs and visions for the future of Fort Collins.

Budgeting for Outcomes, or BFO, is the City’s process around creating a budget that combines data, research and public engagement to allocate resources in a way that is reflective and responsive to the community.
