A Balancing Act

The Dane County Board of Supervisors is using a powerful tool to educate the residents of Dane County around the budget process.

Balancing Act is an online simulation that allows residents to share their priorities for the county’s budget.  The County Board wants to hear from residents about what programs and services are the most important.

Balancing Act allows residents to review and choose from some of the same options the County Board will consider, including cutting expenses or raising revenue.

The simulation includes information about county departments, the services they provide, and allows users to see how changes affect different areas of the budget.
