Ariana’s citizen delegates forum

Ariana’s citizen delegates forum

After the organization of the citizen forums of the Participatory Budgeting process, the municipality of Ariana organized, on the 21st of October 2017, the citizen delegates forum which gathered the 16 citizen elected delegates. The role of the delegates was to sort, by priority, the projects voted by the citizens based on the Participatory Budgeting principles, specifically the principles of equity and solidarity.

The technical service of the municipality attended the forum in order to provide necessary technical and administrative information to the citizen delegates. The financial services took also part in this forum to provide the preliminary estimated cost of each project voted by the citizens, and which is technically feasible. Besides, the local facilitators of the Participatory Budgeting participated in the logistical preparation of this forum, as well as, to provide support to the citizen delegates in their work.

Based on all these pieces of information, and according to the budget allocated to the projects of the Participatory Budgeting process from the municipality of Ariana (4.000.000 Tunisian Dinars for the roads and pavements, public lightening, embellishment of the city, management of rainwater, and local sports fields), the citizen delegates reached a consensus on a list of 36 projects over 50 to be implemented by the municipality.

Moreover, the citizen delegates created monitoring committees in order to supervise and evaluate the implementation of the decided projects, as mentioned in the following documents.
