The City of Elk Grove is taking the Elk Grove budget on the road to gather input from the community about priorities for the 2013‐14 fiscal years pending plan and it wants community input.
Two town hall meetings are planned next week to provide residents an opportunity to talk with Representatives from the City of Elk Grove in order to learn more about the budget process and the city’s plans for the upcoming year.
