Monterey Park Resident Survey
The City of Monterey Park is conducting community outreach around its City Budget and resident’s priorities. Monterey Park, like most California cities, is facing rising demands for services and must make informed choices about what to prioritize and the City would like to hear from as many residents as possible about their most important issues. You can let us know your priorities by completing the short survey available at this link.
