For Fiscal Years 2016-2017 and 2017-2018

Community Budget Priorities Workshop Flyer

View Live Webcast Here!

All Manhattan Beach community members are invited to participate in a Budget Prioritization workshop for fiscal years 2016-2017 and 2017-2018.

Learn about the City’s new biennial budget cycle and provide your input on top budget priorities for the next two fiscal years. City officials will share information about the decisions that go into developing the budget, various spending and revenue constraints, and the trade-offs that have to be made in funding services and programs.

Feedback provided by attendees will be used as a guide during the development of the two-year Budget as well as for long-range planning. Community input is essential for the Budget, and long-range fiscal planning, to reflect what the Manhattan Beach community wants to accomplish.

Thursday, January 21, 2016
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Joslyn Community Center
1601 North Valley Drive
Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

During the 2015 budget cycle, nearly 150 residents and community members attended. Space is limited, so please RSVP soon to ensure your place! Sandwiches and light snacks will be provided.

As a background, the City will use its City-wide Strategic Plan, which is scheduled for discussion and possible adoption on January 5th, 2016, to ensure that budget decisions are made in line with the established pillars of success for the City. These pillars are:

  • Strong Governance that Values Meaningful Resident Engagement
  • Excellent City Services Provided by an Aligned and Committed Workforce
  • Financial Sustainability
  • Environmental Stewardship
