Engage Morgan Hill - A community conversation about services, funding and priorities
Engage Morgan Hill   is a community conversation about services, funding and priorities. It will be a year long community engagement process that will take us right through the next next two year budget development and adoption for fiscal years 2020-21 and 2021-22.

Join the Conversation
We are excited to announce the launch of Polco, an innovative engagement platform where residents can directly provide input to the local government decision-making process.

The City received a grant from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation to pilot Polco for the next year. The grant provided the perfect opportunity for the city to enhance engagement efforts as part of the Engage Morgan Hill process, at no additional cost.

We have just launched the first question using this new engagement tool, asking for your input. Specifically,


You can provide your input by downloading the Polco app for Android or iOS, or by visiting the Polco website and creating an account. Polco’s platform is available via web, mobile app, email, and any place Polco e-ballots are found online. This service is free to all residents.

Polco is committed to a strict privacy policy where they only share aggregated de-identified results. Participants’ individual data and votes are never shared.

If you would like more information about Polco or Engage Morgan Hill , please contact Maureen Tobin, Communications and Engagement Manager at 408.310.4706 or email EngageMorganHill@morganhill.ca.gov
