Residents asked to weigh in on DuPage County spending via online survey

DUPAGE COUNTY – The DuPage County Board is inviting residents to share which services and programs they believe should take priority in the 2014 county budget, according to a news release from the board.

A new online survey released to coincide with the county's budget process offers residents the opportunity to tell political representatives what they think is most important. The priorities of next year's budget are being determined now, according to the release, and information collected from the survey will provide feedback.

Questions in the survey address government challenges, service prioritization and service funding methods.

The release said that once Board President Dan Cronin unveils the proposed budget in September, several public hearings will be held throughout the county, at which residents can learn more about the plan. Residents can take the county survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/dupagebudgetfy14.
