Let’s (budget) party!

Monday, August 6, 2018 by Austin Monitor

Municipal budget time is upon us and as is tradition we are excited to announce our third annual budget party game night!

As Austin City Council gears up to debate and deliberate our city budget, we are hosting an interactive game night that will allow you to both dive deep into how your money is being spent and propose your own budget priorities. Budget game night gives you an opportunity to play the Budget Party game, a web application to explore Austin’s city budget, and invites you to remix how departments and services are funded.

With the help of Open Austin and Austin Tech Alliance, we will also be learning about participatory budgeting and how it can help bring about a more transparent, collaborative budget process.

If you have ideas about how the city’s money should be allocated and would like to learn about innovative approaches to city budgeting, be sure to RSVP to this year’s Budget Party.

Join us on Tuesday, Aug. 14, from 5:30 until 8:00 p.m. at Capital Factory. Tickets are free and refreshments will be provided.
