Balancing Act provides local government the tools for financial transparency, accountability, polling on budget/financial issues and public participation in the budget process. Replace those static citizen budgets and PDF's with more accessible tools. Our tools include an easy-to-use interactive budget simulation that can be customized to meet your community's needs. The taxpayer receipt module allows residents to understand how their tax dollars are being allocated. If face-to-face meetings are a priority, the Balancing Act's Meeting Mode turns the simulation into a dynamic facilitation tool that adds a spark to public meetings that focus on the budget and financial issues. Balancing Act can also provide your community expert consulting on public engagement, budgeting for outcomes, and pension reform.
