Obviously the District Assembly adopts the budget annually, but it seems to me we never really have a discussion on what the district should or should not do, and why. Which means we often get folks complaining about the district budget, and sometimes the same ones, asking for money from the district. It seems to me we could really do with an agreed upon document that says what the district is to do, and what not, directly linked to the proposed budget.
I've started to write a policy document on that one, but I'd love to have input on this. Do any of you know about such a document in the district you are in? Can't imagine I'm the first one to ever come up with such an idea.
Ideally, I'd like to see a cycle develop: Establish policy -> work out in the budget -> act -> report on the actions as determined by policy and budget -> adapt policy where needed -> work out in the budget etc etc.
