Boulder's 2012 Budget Highlights Second Year of Priority Based Budgeting, Further Confirms City as Leader in the Practice

The recommended budget continues the city’s 2011 transition to priority-based budgeting that reflects community priorities.

“The combination of budget reallocations, the reorganization of some programs, and the development of a capital investment strategy ensures the City of Boulder will be in a financial position to maintain core government services over the long term,” explained Brautigam. “The reorganization of programs and services allows the city to restructure several existing positions to achieve cost savings in several programs and add 12 full-time equivalent positions to meet increasing demand for services in selected areas.”
