Wheaton – DuPage County residents have the opportunity to share important feedback with County Board members and staff by completing DuPage’s annual budget survey. The survey is available online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/FYPRHJ6.

Each year, the DuPage County Board asks the residents to provide their thoughts pertaining to County programs and spending priorities. The information helps shape the next year’s budget, determining spending levels for the County’s various programs.

“This is not our budget; it is the taxpayers’ budget. We hope they take ownership and give the Board feedback on their spending priorities for 2019,” said Finance Committee Chairman Bob Larsen.

The survey coincides with the regular budget process as DuPage officials determine spending levels for Fiscal Year 2019, which begins on Dec. 1, 2018.

DuPage County residents may take the brief survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/FYPRHJ6 or from the County’s homepage at www.dupageco.org and clicking on the budget survey link at the top of the page.

County Board Chairman Dan Cronin will present his FY2019 budget plan to the County Board on Sept. 25.
