CHICAGO — People who want to sound off on Chicago’s budget can speak at upcoming forums.

The city will host three public forums where residents can learn about the 2022 budget and give feedback on how money should be spent, according to a Mayor’s Office news release. The feedback will be used to shape the city’s budget plans.

Positions will be limited, and people should register.

The forums:

10 a.m.-noon Aug. 7 at XS Tennis, 5336 S. State St.

6-8 p.m. Aug. 11 at Malcolm X College gym, 1900 W. Jackson Blvd.

6-8 p.m. Aug. 12 at Truman College, 1145 W. Wilson Ave.

Registration is free and available online.

The doors will open an hour before the forums start so attendees can also attend resource fairs where they can learn about city services.

American Sign Language and Spanish interpreters will be available. People who will need other interpreters can email by Monday.
