How would you balance the budget?

The City of Sterling Heights is excited to present two new tools to increase transparency in the budget process and provide an opportunity for residents to provide input.

A Balancing Act

Balancing Act is an online interactive tool that not only provides information about the current budget, but offers residents an opportunity to provide input. What departments do you think need more funding? Less funding? How would you raise revenue to pay for increased funding? Let us know what is important to you! But don’t forget the budget must be balanced! 

Taxpayer Receipt

Taxpayer Receipt allows residents to see exactly how their tax dollars are spent by providing an unofficial, itemized receipt. Simply enter the current taxable value of your home and see your annual cost for city services.
