2023 Budget

The City Budget sets the service levels and priorities for City services, programs and infrastructure. This is a key time to make your voice heard and fight for our collective vision for the City we want. Your feedback is a crucial part of the budget, whether that's by making a written submission, completing our Davenport Budget Survey, or appearing in front of the Budget Committee to make a presentation. 

Below, you can find information and resources on how to get involved in the 2023 Budget. You can also reach out to my office if you have questions, comments, or suggestions.
