What city spending priorities would *you* like to see? The City of Manhattan Beach wants to know.
As the city prepares its 2020/2021 budget, it has created an Open City Hall survey for all residents to weigh in on budget priorities. (The survey is available here.)
The survey gives residents an opportunity to rank city spending priorities, ranging from police and fire services, to parking enforcement, to cultural and recreation activities, to infrastructure improvements.
Survey takers can also weigh in on priorities for renovation, including Begg Pool, the Manhattan Beach Art Center, Joslyn Community Center, and the Manhattan Beach Historical Society.
Meanwhile, community members are invited to a Budget Priorities Open House for an interactive look at the city’s financial resources on Tuesday, January 28. The event will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Joslyn Community Center.
The session will give participants a picture of what lies ahead for Manhattan Beach, as well as an opportunity to provide input about specific ideas as the city develops its budget for fiscal year 2020-2021.
Food will be provided at this event, so RSVPs are requested. Please RSVP to to firstname.lastname@example.org.
