Menlo Watch: City calls on residents for help Menlo Watch: City calls on residents for help (February 08, 2006)

Menlo Park residents are invited to participate in workshops this week and next to help the city decide how to tackle a $2.9 million expected shortfall in the budget year starting July 1.

Participants will break up into small groups -- called "mini-city councils" -- and recommend which services to cut and revenues to raise.

The advice will be passed to the City Council, which makes the actual decisions.

Workshop times and places are:

** Thursday, February 9, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Belle Haven School cafeteria, 414 Ivy Drive.

** Saturday, February 11, from 9 a.m. to noon at Burgess Recreation Center, 701 Laurel St.

** Wednesday, February 15, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at La Entrada School, Jensen Hall, 2200 Sharon Road.

Child care and translators will be available.

For more information or to volunteer to be a workshop facilitator, call 330-6646, or e-mail:
