Budget Meeting: Where Do You Want Your Tax Dollars Spent?

County Commissioners host two budget meetings to gather the publics' views on next year's budget.

It’s that time of year when county commissioners look at the budget and make cuts that can impact you. Here’s your chance to let them know what services are most important. 

How do you want your tax dollars spent? Is it with county parks, social services, low-income housing, or homeless prevention programs?

County commissioners are looking at the 2011 budget, which has a predicted deficit of $21.5 million. This is the fifth year the county has to make cuts. They will examine programs supported by the general fund.

Commissioners are asking for public input during this process.  All county citizens get a chance to share their opinions about the budget, at two public meetings.

The meetings will begin with a presentation and will allow for citizen participation. It will be followed by an open house that allows citizens to speak personally with commissioners. County staff and administrators will also be there to try and answer questions.

The meetings are:
