Public engagement in city and county budgeting throughout
California takes many forms. Included here are stories that
illustrate a number of different approaches that local officials

Although the Institute endeavors to help local officials
understand technical and legal concepts that apply to their
public service, these materials are not technical or legal
advice. Officials are encouraged to consult technical
experts, attorneys and/or relevant regulatory authorities for
up-to-date information and advice on specific situations.
