 Mayor Steven M. Fulop announces the launch of a participatory budget pilot program to directly involve residents in the City’s spending decisions.  The participatory budget creates a transparent process where residents decide which community projects and initiatives they want to see funded.  Each ward will vote on residents’ ideas and determine how the money to spend.
