Participatory Budgeting

PUBLIC VOTE ON AUGUST 1 AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER FROM 5 PM TO 6:30 PM!

Participatory Budgeting gives ordinary people real decision-making power over real money in order to make our Town a better place to live!

The Wickenburg Town Council has allocated $65,000 for physical improvements that benefit the public on Town-owned property. If you have a public project idea, this is your chance to make it happen! Get your group organized and develop a project plan (Town staff can help). Prepare your best sales pitch to get community members to vote for your project. The project with the most votes will be funded and constructed. Good luck!
