Thurston to let residents give budget feedback
Thurston County has released a new online tool for residents to learn about the county’s budget and provide feedback about how they think money should be allocated.
Users of the OpenGov tool can complete a five-minute survey to inform the county how they would spend money in seven different categories: economic vitality, general government, health and human services, law and justice, legislative, capital budget, and internal services.
The budgets suggested by Thurston County residents will be shared with the Board of Commissioners when the next biennium budget is created.
"This tool provides our citizens with another way to provide their perspective on the county business and share with the Board of Commissioners their thoughts on important issues," said County Manager Ramiro Chavez. "I am excited to see how this technology will help the county improve services and build public trust."
