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
