Join The Conversation — Community Feedback
Moreno Valley prides itself on being a safe, well-maintained community where we can live, do business, or raise a family. These community centered values were reflected in our most recent budget process —but given current and upcoming changes at the State and County level — we want to continue to outreach our community on their service priorities, so that we continue to make community-centered budget decisions for years to come.
To aid in that effort, the city recently conducted an updated community priorities survey during our budget process in 2019. Some of the service priorities identified by your neighbors in that updated survey include:
- Preventing robberies and burglaries
- Maintaining 911 emergency response times
- Repairing Potholes
- Maintaining safe and clean public areas
- Maintaining crime fighting programs/gang and youth violence prevention programs
- Maintaining sworn police officers on the streets/the number of fire engines in service
- Addressing homelessness
Now that we have heard from your neighbors- we want to hear from you!

The review of the proposed budget provides a public process to discuss the City’s proposed budget with the City Council and public to make the process as transparent as possible. The review of the budget as part of this initial adoption, subsequent amendments, and periodic reviews provides an ongoing public process to monitor expenditures and revenues throughout the fiscal years.
As part of the budget adoption process, the City Council has requested a series of discussions related to the proposed budget long-term financial issues impacting the City. These discussions occur through various City Council meetings and study sessions, with the intent to review and discuss details and related impacts. Information presented on these topics will be posted on the City’s web site as part of the posted Agenda Packages.
