Engage Morgan Hill
The City of Morgan Hill is conducting an extensive outreach and engagement process with the Morgan Hill community. Named simply and appropriately, “Engage Morgan Hill” is a conversation about services, funding and priorities. The focus of this process is 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 will provide a deeper understanding of the City budget, finances, revenue sources and expenses. While educating the community, the intent is also to listen and provide an opportunity for the community to be part of the decision-making progress to ensure the City’s fiscal sustainability in the future.

We want to hear from you! We need your input as we plan for the future fiscal sustainability of Morgan Hill.
How to Get Engaged
In June 2019, the City of Morgan Hill launched Polco, an innovative engagement platform where residents can directly provide input to the local government decision-making process. The city will post questions directly to residents on Polco’s app and website, where residents answer and comment on the questions.
Start providing your input by downloading the Polco app for Android or iOS, or by visiting the Polco website and creating an account today.
Community Advisory Group
In order to meet the challenges ahead, City staff have 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 Community will have a key role in making recommendations for the City Council to consider for the upcoming 2020/21 - 2021/22 two year budget preparation.
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.
