The new website allows citizens the opportunity to provide feedback on the budget proposal, while also allowing visitors to come up with their own balanced budget.

“This is not my budget, it is Nashville’s budget,” Mayor Barry said. “I think that we have done a good job putting together the budget proposal. It was developed with departments, takes care of our youth, our employees and our future. I want the public to feel confident in how we spend our funds and this application helps further that goal.”

The website, Balancing Act, is a web-based simulation that has been used across the country.

Those who want to review the mayor’s recommended budget, or try their hand at balancing their own can visit Nashville-tn.abalancingact.com.
