In the interest of transparency and open government, Mayor Lloyd Winnecke introduced the Summary Budget to members of the Evansville City Council Wednesday at the opening of hearing on the proposed 2013 budget for the City of Evansville. The Summary Budget presents information in an easy-to-read format that includes pie charts, graphs and bulleted lists of information.
“The more people know about the city’s budget the more likely they are to become engaged in the process,” said Mayor Winnecke. “Often there are misconceptions about revenue and expenditures, and the Summary Budget is a tool to help explain finances in local government.”
The four-page Summary Budget includes lists highlighting proposed 2013 budget goals, new priorities set by the Winnecke Administration, capital budget revenue and capital investments, pie charts on total expenses and revenue, and basic demographic information about the City of Evansville.
Copies of the Summary Budget are at the City Controller’s office, Room 300, Civic Center Complex, or on the homepage of this website in the Links section or click the link below this story. Copies will also be available at city budget hearings today and Friday. The hearings begin at 4 p.m. in Room 301 at the Civic Center.
