Reminder of Deadline for Submissions to Project 6 Million

Jul 17, 2015

For Immediate Release                                                                         Friday, July 17, 2015              

Residents are reminded that the deadline to submit ideas and input for Project 6 Million (P6M) is end of day on Friday, July 31, 2015. 

For budget 2015, City Council directed and passed a tax levy increase of 0%, which was made possible in part by using $6 million in one-time contributions from reserves and capital. In order to minimize the 2016 budget impact, $6 million in permanent savings must be identified.

The City invited the public to submit their ideas to help achieve permanent savings of $6 million for the 2016 budget. Input to P6M is being sought from municipal employees, from Council, and from members of the public. All suggestions received will be tracked, evaluated and reported on. Anonymous ideas are welcome.

Residents can submit ideas online at or by sending an email to
