Cincinnati residents are invited to give input on the next city budget at a public hearing Monday afternoon. The Budget and Finance Committee will hear public comment during its meeting at 1 p.m.

Committee Chair David Mann is recommending the budget include funding for new police and fire department recruits. He also wants to prioritize the Emergency Communications Center, public services, and more.

The city is expecting a deficit, but is also set to receive about $290 million in federal stimulus over the next two years.

Council must finalize the next fiscal year budget by the end of June. Monday's public hearing is virtual and will be streamed live on CitiCable. Residents must register to speak by 9 a.m.
