The results are in for cycle six of City Council district 31 Participatory Budgeting.
A brief description of how Participatory Budgeting works before results.
Participatory Budgeting is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. It’s a grassroots democracy. It helps make budget decisions clear and accessible. It gives real power to people who have never before been involved in the political process before.
Here are your winners. The current Budget is 2 million dollars this cycle.
