Budget Party!

Monday, August 26, 2019 by Austin Monitor

Be sure to mark your calendars for our fourth annual Budget Party on Aug. 29! Budget Party is a web app designed for mobile devices that teaches you about the city of Austin budgeting process. The evening starts with an overview of city budgeting, complete with a budget-themed coloring book. Then we’ll break up into groups and invite you to remix how city departments and city services are funded. Each group will present its budget to be judged, and one budget will be chosen as the winner! (Note that to participate in this activity you will need a personal mobile phone or laptop.) Thursday, Aug. 29, 6-9 p.m., at Capital Factory, 1st floor Voltron room, 701 Brazos St. Make sure to RSVP on Eventbrite to stay up to date with event details!
