FY2023 Budget

Help us STEER the budget! 

The City of Fort Worth is currently planning the 2023 budget and we need your help. 

We want residents of Fort Worth to go around town and let us know where they think the 2023 budget needs to be spent.

Please take Molly, our city mascot, and take a picture of her where you think investments are needed. It can be at a park that needs revitalizing or a street that needs repaving. 


You can even join Molly in the picture!
