The city will hold a budget workshop/hearing on May 21 and then a City Council meeting on June 5 for consideration of adopting the fiscal year 2018-19 budget.

At the last Public Safety Task Force meeting, officials said if we were concerned about money for more officers, this is the meeting to attend.

The meeting is set for 4-8 p.m. at the City Council Chambers, located at 100 Avenida Presidio.

Let’s be proactive instead of reactive. I hope that public comments will be scheduled at both the start and end of the meeting. I think residents want to state their opinions so they can be considered in the discussion of the issues. But I know I also have things to say or questions to ask after I have heard a discussion of the issues. At the City Council meetings and the Public Safety Task Force, dialog with residents is not protocol.

If you agree or have something to add or perhaps want to request a later start time, email Erik Sund, the assistant city manager, at
