Participatory Budgeting Committee

Participatory Budgeting Committee Information

WHAT IS PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING?
Participatory Budgeting is an opportunity for the public to vote on capital projects they would like to see in their hometown. "Capital project" is defined as a long-term investment made to build upon, add, or improve a capital intensive project, such as repairs to public buildings, park improvements, bike racks, and traffic safety.

WHY PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING IN FREEHOLD BOROUGH?
The Mayor and Council of Freehold Borough urge residents to play a more active role in their own Government. Participatory Budgeting offers residents a say in how the Mayor and Council allocate resources. It also builds stronger communities, engages residents, and promotes the democratic process.

HOW TO GET A PB PROPOSAL ON A BALLOT FOR A COMMUNITY VOTE:
Borough residents age fourteen and older are invited to come together to discuss local needs and the best ways to address them. Proposal forms will be available for community members to submit their ideas. Residents will then vote on the proposals either online or with a paper ballot.

Once a project is approved by the Governing Body, it will be included in the funding for the Borough's annual budget.
