Should discretionary funds for ward services and infrastructure improvements be allocated in equal amounts to each ward, based on the size of each ward, or based on the needs of each ward?

Yes.based on the size of each ward - Should be largely equal, based on the physical size of each
ward. A new funding model needs to be devised whereby large wards by area are not punished
for having the same funds but many, many more streets to resurface each year than other more
compact wards. Menu monies either need to have an additive factor for miles of paving to be
addressed, or resurfacing citywide should be covered under a separate budget line altogether.

in equal amounts to each ward

Yes,’m sympathetic to the view that discretionary funds should be allocated based on the needs of
the ward. However, I would not be willing to sacrifice discretionary funds that could be used to
improve the lives of 46th Ward citizens. However, menu funds should be part of the muchneeded
discussion on prioritization of needs in the City budget. I think our public schools, for
example, should be higher priority than providing discretionary funds to the wards.

It depends on the service at issue. Each category of service may call for a different type
of allocation

based on the needs of each ward (I believe both ward size and ward needs should be taken into
account.)

NO. Until we get our city back on financial track and/or have the adequate systems in place to properly evaluate varied city wide allocation we should keep the aldermanic funds equal.

At present all wards receive the same amount of discretionary funding. Neighborhoods that have
maintained their infrastructure will have remaining funds to complete optional repairs that further
enhance their wards.
