The City of Long Beach is inviting members of the public to participate in the City’s fiscal year 2023 budget development process by sharing their service priorities at one of two upcoming virtual community budget meetings. The community budget meetings were originally scheduled to be held in person at multiple locations throughout the city; however, due to the increased transmission of COVID-19, the City recently transitioned all scheduled in-person community outreach meetings to a virtual format as part of various City service modifications that were announced earlier this month. The virtual community budget meetings will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 25, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., and Thursday, Jan. 27, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
For more information and to register, people may visit longbeach.gov/fy23. Advanced registration is required in order to receive the link to the Zoom meeting. Interpretation services will be available. Those who require interpretation services may call 562.570.6465 at least 72 hours in advance of each meeting.
In addition to the meetings, community members may also submit their budget service priorities by completing the Long Beach Budget Priority Survey, available online now through Jan. 28. Surveys are available in English, Spanish, Khmer and Tagalog.
Public input is an important and valued part of the City’s budget preparation process. The community budget meetings and online survey play an integral part in helping the City understand what community members believe the City’s budget priorities should be.
Feedback provided at the community meetings and survey will be reported to the Long Beach City Council in early spring prior to the development of the Proposed FY 23 Budget.
