The City of Evanston will be holding an “Engage Evanston” citizen budget input session on Saturday, September 17th at 9 a.m. at the Robert Crown Center located a 1701 Main St. The session will include a session description, budget update, review of service change ideas and citizen feedback and input.

Engage Evanston is a community outreach initiative intended to give residents an opportunity to help shape budget priorities.

The first phase of Engage Evanston ran from May 1 -May 7, 2011 and residents were asked to submit their ideas for generating non-tax revenue and containing costs. Those ideas can be accessed here.
