[ARCHIVED] Town Council Seeks Budget Input

The Town Council will be reviewing budget proposals from staff throughout February and March.  The Town Council and staff recognize that the way State law requires local government to offer opportunities for budget input is flawed.  For that reason the Town has scheduled a significant number of additional opportunities for public input into the budget process.  Please take advantage of the following  opportunities.

Town Council Meeting, Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 7 p.m.

At this meeting the Town Council will hold an unofficial budget public hearing.  This public hearing is an opportunity for citizens, businesses, and community members to provide general or specific budget guidance before the budget document is prepared.  This opportunity is an open forum so the Town Council and staff can hear from the public.  

Town Council Budget Worksession, Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 7 p.m.

At this meeting the Town Manager will introduce the budget and discuss revenues and requests for funding from outside agencies.  Budgets for Tourism, Public Works, and Capital Projects will also be presented.

Town Council Budget Worksession, Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Town staff will present the Planning & Community Development, Finance, Parks & Recreation, Police, Administration, Information Technology and Non-Departmental budgets. 

Town Council Meeting, Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at 7 p.m.

The Town Manager will present his recommended budget to Town Council.

There will be final budget meetings in May after the recommended budget is considered and publicly advertised according to State law.  The dates of these meetings will be determined at a later time.  

Citizens are encouraged to participate early and often in the budget process.  Please contact the Town Manager, Joshua Farrar, with any questions or concerns you may have at (804) 798-9219.
