Historically, the City of Hopkins has engaged with the community. One of the goals in the City’s strategic plan is to “take it to them” and includes strategies and action steps to meet this goal.
In, 2020 the City began incorporating engagement sessions as part of the budget process. During the pandemic, the options to engage have been limited. The City has provided virtual options as a safe way to engage. As it becomes safer, the City will continue to evaluate the best way to engage with residents and taxpayers on the budget.
