The City of Dover each year conducts an informal survey of residents to help gauge budget priorities. This exercise, Dover Dollars, consists of ballot boxes located at City Hall and allows residents to vote on budget priorities with limited funds. The results of this year's Dover Dollars exercise can be found here. In 2011, the residents participated in a budget survey by mail. The survey, conducted by the National Citizen Survey, asked residents to rate budgeted resources and programs by priority, from highest to lowest. The 2011 Citizen Survey can be viewed here. At the April 25, 2012, City Council meeting, City Manager J. Michael Joyal, Jr., provided the Council with organizational staffing charts for all City departments, as well as grant funding received in the four previous fiscal years, and anticipated grant funding in FY2013.
