Today’s local governments are under great pressure to provide services faster, cheaper, and in more customized ways while meeting stringent standards for financial transparency and performance accountability.

These trends, coupled with a growing distrust of public institutions, suggest that local governments have much to gain from effective communication with citizens about service delivery costs, processes, and priorities. The budget process is an ideal forum for presenting that information and stimulating community involvement.
