Chamber Cosponsors Monterey’s Informative State of the City Event

On Thursday, September 26, a group of business associations and businesses - including the Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce - hosted a free “State of the City” event at the Portola Hotel & Spa for the people of the City of Monterey.

Featured speakers were Monterey Mayor Clyde Roberson and City Manager Hans Uslar. Event sponsors provided free food and drinks and ample time for networking before and after the speeches.

Mayor Roberson emphasized the continuing efforts of city leadership to provide a high quality of life for residents. City Manager Uslar warned attendees that the city is projecting increasing budget deficits and must prepare for more aggressive actions to balance the budget in future years.

Both city leaders noted many positive things about the City of Monterey and recognized the importance of businesses in building and sustaining a thriving, prosperous city.
