The City of Muscatine must adopt an annual budget by March 15th of each year. That process starts in November when departments receive budget materials and instructions.
Throughout the budget process there are numerous opportunities to participate and engage with your City staff and Council members. Below you will find the schedule for this year’s budget process.
Please stayed tuned for periodic updates on the process, issues and challenges we face in putting together a budget for a full service city…a budget that meets our community needs, but that is responsible at the same time.
As always, our ideas and constructive input are most welcome! Please feel free to respond here on Wordress, the City’s Facebook page, other social media outlets or by email. Here is my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.

As the City of Muscatine begins the process of reconstructing and reimagining what the Mississippi Drive Corridor could be, here is a new tool provided by the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute and AARP:
Here is a brief explanation of this new resource provided by the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute:
“What can livability look like in a rural context? How about a suburban one? And what can be done to make existing urban conditions more walkable and bikeable?
If you believe a picture can speak a thousand words, or you know people who are visual learners, then you will enjoy and want to share the latest free, educational resource created by the WALC Institute and AARP: The Imagining Livability Design Collection, a visual portfolio of tools and transformations.”
