This is done through an inclusive process known as Budgeting by Priorities. The City invites community input to evaluate budget priorities through the prism of what citizens value most and ask them to rank the six priorities in order of their importance.  Vote at
·         As always: LOCK IT UP! Our property crime numbers were dramatically up [33%] for 2013.  The best way to combat theft is to remove valuables from your vehicles, report suspicious activity, and record your serial numbers on all electronics, valuables and bicycles. We appreciate all you do to help us keep our city safe.
