More than 200 Participate In Budget Games

MISSOULA -

Almost 200 people showed up to Missoula's first budget game to give their say on where funds from the city's budget should be used for. The event just wrapped up in the University Theater at UM.

In a Monopoly-styled game, participants decide how to spend, or save, an amount of fake money using a list of city-wide enhancements and reductions. Councilwoman Caitlin Copple organized the event and says based on Tuesday's turn-out she thinks it was a success.

"This has been a year in a half in the making at least, working with this non-profit out of Silicon Valley to bring the games to Missoula, raising private sponsorships from businesses in the community, everything, it just all came together," Copple said.

She said depending on how the event went, the Budget Game could be an annual event. If you didn't get the chance to go to the event, you can give the city your input on the budget by visiting the Budget Game website, or emailing city council at council@ci.missoula.mt.us.
