[ARCHIVED] Morro Bay Launches New Public Engagement Tool

Office Hours

Morro Bay, CA – The City of Morro Bay is excited to announce the launch of Polco, an innovative engagement platform where residents can directly provide input to the local government decision-making process. By using Polco, the City is making public participation easier for residents by meeting them where they are. Officials will post questions directly to residents on Polco’s app and website, where residents answer and comment on the questions.

The City will soon be asking residents for their input on their general perceptions of Morro Bay. Specifically, the City wants to know what residents think about Morro Bay as a place to live and work, and how they receive important information about the City.

“We are excited to launch this engagement tool, in order to encourage broad participation in City decisions about the budget, policies and programs,” said City Manager, Scott Collins.

The City will also be asking for further input on the upcoming City Council Goals setting process on Polco in the coming weeks.

Residents begin giving input by downloading the Polco app for Android or iOS, or by visiting and clicking "sign-up" to create an account. Polco’s platform is available via web, mobile app, email, and any place Polco e-ballots are found online. This service is free to all residents.

Polco is committed to a strict privacy policy where they only share aggregated de-identified results. Participants’ individual data and votes are never shared.
