Mayor Fenske said that they received some good suggestions from the public, including some that the City was already looking at with regards to the ownership of large equipment.
He added that the City has officially launched their annual budget survey, which can be found here. Mayor Fenske said that a hard-copy version of the survey can be found at City Hall. He said that around 154 people responded last year, and that he's hoping for 500 responses this year.
The survey gives the public the opprotunity to let the City know how important various services are to them.
