As part of the Open Raleigh initiative, the City plans to establish an open data catalog allowing access to city data sets in standard, open ways for technical and non-technical users.

We need your input and ideas about applications and information that you would use. Your input will help us identify and prioritize data sets for publication.

We can only provide data sets for the information maintained by the City of Raleigh. The City does not maintain school, election, or tax information. The information Raleigh maintains is related to these services:
Inspections
City of Raleigh Budget
Fire
Police
Planning
Parks and Recreation
Solid Waste Services
Water,Sewer and Stormwater

Please let us know the top three services that you feel add the most value to the City of Raleigh.  Why do you feel that way?  Your answer to this question may be different than your answer to the first survey question.

Public Safety (Police, Fire, 911)
Leisure Services (Parks, Entertainment, Convention Center, etc.)
Public Transportation
Roads and Bridges
Water and Sewer
Commercial/Residential/Business Development
Solid Waste Services
General Government

Sometimes residents feel that city programs or services aren't providing enough value.  Are there any programs that you feel should be changed or discontinued?  Why? 

Please vote for your three services that you feel the City of Raleigh should spend money on in FY 2014-2015.

Public Safety (Police, Fire, 911)

Leisure Services (Parks, Entertainment, Convention Center, etc.)

Public Transportation

Road and Bridge Repair

Water and Sewer

Commercial/Residential/Business Development

If we were to look at all City spending in the General Fund in FY2014 as being equal to $1, this is how the money would be broken out:

$0.37 Public Safety (Police, Fire, 911)

$0.13 Leisure Services  

$0.11 Public Works & Public Transit  

$0.10 Appropriation to Capital Debt* (money used to repay loans taken to finance big projects)  

$0.08 General Government 

$0.05 Community Development Services  

$0.04 Information Technology  

$0.03 Solid Waste Services  (this is financed through user fees and charges but receives a subsidy from the General Fund)

$0.01 Financial Management  

$0.07 Appropriation to Capital Program* (money set aside to pay for large City projects)

$0.01 External Agencies   

*Fixed expenses that are allocated to finance major projects.


Now, if it were up to you, how would you choose to allocate the money?  Remember, capital debt and capital program amounts have to stay the same as in FY14.  Everything else can change.
