Preparations start now for 2022 bonding

If your city or county plans to request bonding funds for a park or trail project at the Legislature in 2022, now is the time to start preparing. The first formal step in requesting those funds is submitting your project through the Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB) Capital Budget System mid-June. To do so, the responsible person(s) in your city or county should register as a user with the system by the end of March.

You can find the form for Local User Authorization at https://mn.gov/mmb-stat/documents/budget/budget-systems/cbs/cbs-local-gov-user-authorization-form.pdf  and you should email it to Budget.Finance.mmb@state.mn.us. You may want to consult with your city or county administrator or manager before proceeding.
