The City of Morgan Hill conducted an extensive outreach and engagement process with the Morgan Hill community from June 2019 through June 2020. Named simply and appropriately, “Engage Morgan Hill” was a conversation about services, funding and priorities. The focus of this process was both educating and engaging the community regarding what services the City provides, how City services are provided, and the funding sources/options for services as we look toward the future. Additionally, Engage Morgan Hill provided a deeper understanding of the City budget, finances, revenue sources and expenses. While educating the community, process also included listening by City Staff and provided an opportunity for the community to be part of the decision-making process to ensure the City’s fiscal sustainability in the future.
The full scope of the Engage Morgan Hill program was introduced at the May 22, 2019, "Engage Morgan Hill Workshop" with our mid-cycle budget update and overview of this community engagement process.

Community Advisory Group
In order to meet the challenges ahead, City staff formed a community advisory group to come together, share ideas, educate themselves and the community, and make informed decisions about how to move forward for a sustainable future. The Morgan Hill Engage Community Advisory Group made recommendations for the City Council to consider for the 2020/21 - 2021/22 two year budget .
