Action Alert – PBC Budget – Write or call the County Commissioners
UPDATE: The Budget Workshop meeting will allow public comment. “(Revised Agenda – Public Comments to follow Board discussion with no time certain)”
Monday, July 12th – is the next PBC Board of County Commissioners’ Budget Workshop. While it will be difficult for most working people to attend the meeting – it’s important that you get your opinions voiced to your commissioners. The grass-roots group – Palm Beach County Lower Taxes Now has published an informative newsletter. There’s a place on the web-site to sign up for the newsletter too.
The group provides links to a Sun-Sentinel article on the budget as well as last month’s budget workshop package. The package has blue and green pages of proposed cuts. Please find and skim through those and then I encourage you to write to your commissioners and let them know, as suggested in the newsletter, that they must do both the blue and green cuts as well as more salary cuts before they resort to additional tax increases!
Take a few minutes and write those letters! Or don’t complain when you look at your next Property Tax bill.
The county budget page with schedules can be found here. UPDATE: The new budget workshop package for the 7/12 meeting has also been posted on the same page.
