Register Now for the March 29 Telephone Town Hall
Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez will host a Telephone Town Hall beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 29 to listen to your concerns and answer your questions about City issues.

Moreno Valley's Telephone Town Hall is an ongoing feature being offered by the City to effectively engage residents in a manner convenient for them.

Instead of asking residents to attend a meeting after a long day of work and family commitments, the Telephone Town Hall brings the meeting to their living rooms, cars or wherever they happen to be.

Using a talk-radio format, residents can ask questions live during the call or just listen to the conversation for as long as they like.

“Community engagement is crucial,” said Mayor Gutierrez. “All of our lives are so busy it’s difficult to try to squeeze in one more appointment. The Telephone Town Hall will make it as easy as possible for residents to hear about what is going on in our City, ask questions, and air their concerns. We want to hear from you.”

The Telephone Town Hall will be broadcast simultaneously in English and Spanish. Participants will have the option of listening to the call and asking questions in either language, with responses also provided accordingly.
Residents can register for the call by visiting the Telephone Town Hall Registration Page or by emailing and providing their name and phone number. Registration will close at noon on March 29.

The City will call registered participants at precisely 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 29 to connect them to the Telephone Town Hall. Residents can listen to the call for the entire meeting or just a portion.

Be part of the conversation and register for the March 29 Telephone Town Hall by visiting the Telephone Town Hall Registration Page.
