 The City of Evanston will be holding an “Engage Evanston” citizen budget input session on Thursday, September 22nd at 7 p.m. in the Parasol Room on the Fourth Floor at the Morton Civic Center located at 2100 Ridge Ave. 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.

Additionally, residents can still take the online budget survey until September 22, 2011 at along with giving the City of Evanston helpful feedback.
