​FY21 Budget Cycle Kicks Off With Budget Priority Survey and Simulator

12/2/2019

budgetMecklenburg County marks the start of the FY2021 budget cycle with the release of its Resident Budget Priority Survey and the Meck Budget Simulator tool.  

The Resident Budget Priority Survey is available starting today through Jan. 8. The survey, now in its second year, is one of several strategies to gather public input on the FY2021 budget.  

The survey may be found on the County's FY21 Budget Process webpage and can be accessed in 100 different languages. Paper copies will also be available in English and Spanish at 23 locations across Mecklenburg County (19 libraries, three senior centers and the County's Community Resource Center).  

And for the first time ever, the County is offering a budget simulation tool to help educate the public on the County's budget. The "Meck Budget Simulator" will allow residents to prepare their own version of the budget by adjusting expenses and revenues. Results of the survey and the Meck Budget Simulator will be shared with the Board of County Commissioners during their annual retreat in January. 

New for FY2021 Budget Cycle: 

  • Online version of the survey is accessible in 100 different languages *New* 
  • Meck Budget Simulator Tool *New*
