MADISON, Wis. - Madison officials are looking for public input as they begin piecing together next year's city budget.
According to a city statement, Madisonians can make their voices heard through an online tool called IdeaScale, where they can propose ideas and vote on ideas submitted by others. Local governments across the country have utilized the tool. Madison's version is available at http://madison.ideascale.com/.
Citywide budget conversations will also take place throughout May. Ideas submitted at IdeaScale will be among several topics discussed at the meetings, the statement said.
Four sessions, all open to the public, will be held, each with its own theme.
Anyone interested in attending the budget conversations can visit http://www.cityofmadison.com/budget/ for dates and locations.
