“We also want to ask the public what are your priorities, are you priorities roads, are you priorities public safety, are your priorities that we keep taxes low, we want to know what those priorities are from the public,” Peoria City Manager Patrick Urich.

The Peoria city manager wants to share more budget information with you and is asking for your feedback.

There will be a public meeting be held 6 p.m. on Monday at the Gateway Building in downtown Peoria.

Urich says the city is looking forward to hearing what is most important to the community.
