TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson Mayor Regina Romero and City Manager Michael Ortega are encouraging the community to take part in a series of town halls to discuss budget for the next fiscal year.

With the next fiscal year starting July 1, the meetings will allow community members to give feedback in four virtual town hall meetings that will entail discussions on infrastructure and mobility, climate action and adaptation, community safety, and a resilient recovery, according to a press release from the Mayor's office.

“I welcome Tucsonans to join the conversation as we work alongside one another to re-imagine how we co-govern as one community,” said Mayor Romero. “Feedback from community members is a critical component of the budgeting process as we approach budgeting decisions for the next fiscal year. I encourage all Tucsonans to participate and make their voice heard.”
