Virtual Town Hall meetings coming in February

Merced residents are encouraged to participate in the two upcoming Town Hall virtual meetings in February. Interested persons can express their views, offer their recommendations, and ask questions at the meetings held from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 11 and Feb. 18.

The Town Halls are being held virtually to protect public safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. In past years, the sessions were held in auditoriums throughout the City.  

There are opportunities for the community to get involved before the Town Hall meetings to learn about the City Council’s goals and priorities. An online survey at www.cityofmerced.org/townhall is being used to poll the residents on a range of matters, and help focus the meetings on topics of importance to residents. Videos are also on the website that highlight the mission of City Departments and their accomplishments. Questions can also be submitted online at the website.

“We really want to hear from our residents, to use the Town Halls to give them a chance to share their thoughts, ideas and opinions,” said Mayor Matt Serratto. “This community has a lot to say, and it’s our job as the City Council to listen to them, especially now during the pandemic when opportunities to engage are limited due to social distancing restrictions.

“The Council uses the information from the Town Halls and the survey to craft our annual budget,” Serratto said. “It’s essential that people take part in these meetings, and the survey, so we know what people want and need as far as City services and programs.”
