Does anyone working with citizen engagement have any ways they have found useful to gain input from the citizen group? Our city wants input on prioritizing/budgeting city services.
Specifically, what have you used to get citizen advisory groups to help your local government identify key services?
Or, alternatively, have you noted any best practices or innovative ways of garnering the input of Citizen Advisory Board members?
Background: The City of Sparks invites input from its Citizen Advisory Board in prioritizing services in this period of belt-tightening. Sparks would like to look at some best practices, award-winning, innovative methods to receive/request the Board’s input. We want to look at some ways cities go about getting their citizen groups to provide information.
