The city of Los Angeles is building its budget for the 2012-13 fiscal year.
It's seeking community input in unprecedented ways, with online surveys and community meetings.
The one happening closest to Echo Park and Silver Lake happens this Monday, Jan. 30 at 6:30 pm at the Glassell Park Senior/Community Center at 3750 Verdugo Road LA CA 90065.
Refreshments will be served. There is parking on the street and in the parking lot.
And while you're at it, take the Mayor's Budget Survey to help decide what core services the city must provide.
