New Online Tools & Survey

The City of Concord recently launched new online tools to help explain Concord’s budget challenges and allow people to explore the City’s budget through an interactive web feature.

The City also released a community survey and is seeking feedback on how residents and business owners would like to see Concord address its long-term fiscal challenges.

This fall, the City hosted a series of community meetings, titled “Prioritizing Our Tomorrow,” to share information on Concord’s projected budget gap and to request community input.

At Council’s direction, staff shared an in-depth presentation about how local government finance works, where the City receives its money, how the funds are spent, the root causes of Concord’s looming financial challenges, and what can be done to address the shortfall. The October 10 community meeting was recorded and is available for viewing on the City’s website.

The new online tools and survey can be accessed on the City’s budget web page.

The survey will remain open through December 31, 2019. The results of the survey, along with information gathered at the community meetings, will be shared with the City Council at a public meeting in early 2020.

To receive notifications of future budget-related meetings, please sign up for alerts.
