This publication illustrates how budgeting can be used to clarify choices about delivery of community services. An example demonstrating the estimation of future fires and annual costs, cost per fire calculation, and determining funding alternatives is provided. A discussion of budgeting for other community services such as transportation, ambulance, law enforcement, and rural rental housing is also included.
