The institution of initiative budgeting, which is relatively new to the Russian legal system, aims at expanding the participation of the population in determining the direction of settlement development. The paper analyzes the main theoretical and practical legal issues related to the current decision-making mechanism for initiative budgeting projects in modern information realities. The study proposes a set of legal measures aimed at improving the content of relevant legal structures to enhance the modern decision-making mechanism for initiative budgeting projects. In particular, the authors substantiate the need to prioritize the development goal of the institution of budgeting, which consists of the transformation of this legal structure from the institution of participatory democracy to the institution of direct democracy.
