  • Friday, Jan. 30, 2-5 p.m., City Hall
  • Wednesday, Feb. 4, 6-8 p.m., Joe and Vi Jacobs Center, 404 Euclid Ave.
  • Saturday, Feb. 14, 9 a.m. to noon, Mira Mesa Library, 8405 New Salem St.

Of course, we’d also like to hear your ideas for balancing the budget this year. If you have specific suggestions, e-mail them to and we’ll post some of them here.
