Participatory budgeting (PB) is a different way to manage public money by engaging people to directly decide how to spend public funds. Palo Alto College has set aside $25,000 for projects that will be brainstormed, proposed, and voted on in Spring 2015 and implemented by Spring 2016 by faculty and staff. This is your opportunity to have your ideas turned into action.
