How Do We Balance The Budget?
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 11:10 AM

MPS is looking for input from our entire community on how to best do that. We hope that the information on these webpages and in the survey you’ll find here will answer questions for you, but we also hope it will also stimulate ideas about how you’d like to see MPS move forward. Everything is on the table. We can’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results. We look forward to hearing from you – and to making MPS stronger than ever.
