The district, in collaboration with the city of Austin and the Travis County Sheriff's Office, is hosting the Building Bridges Town Hall to get feedback on a multiyear budget stabilization plan.

What: The town hall will focus on the fiscal forecast, with attendees having the opportunity to weigh in on priorities that will inform a multiyear budget stabilization plan.

When: 1:30-3 p.m. Saturday, March 3

Where: Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex, 1156 Hargrave St.

Background: The district anticipates an estimated budget shortfall of $30 million.
