Fiscal Year 23 Budget Process

It is time to begin planning the fiscal year 2023 budget for the City of Winooski, which voters will see on the Town Meeting Day ballot on March 1, 2022. Members of the public are invited to participate in the budgeting process and share your thoughts, priorities, and concerns. 

Community members can join our City Council budget meetings in-person (masks and 6 ft distancing required) or by Zoom (computer and telephone). These meetings are an opportunity for you to weigh in on how our tax dollars are spent before the City Council sets the budget. Please share your thoughts, ask questions, and tell us how you want your tax dollars spent.
