#MeckBoCC and FreeMoreWest launch public budget discussion series on Thursday
Posted on 22 Feb 2011 by Desiree Kane
From a press release on the CharMeck.Org website:
The public is invited to participate in an interactive forum with Mecklenburg County leaders to talk about the 2012 budget priorities.
The event will be a kickoff event to a planned series of similar talks Mecklenburg County staff are organizing with neighborhoods and other community groups. The purpose is to inform Mecklenburg residents about the current conditions as the County begins planning its budget for next fiscal year, and receive input from residents on what is most important to them in terms of County-funded services.
The kickoff meeting is being hosted by FreeMoreWest Partners at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 24 at Charlotte School of Law, 2145 Suttle Ave. Scheduled to speak are Harry L. Jones Sr., County manager; Hyong Yi (@budgetbadger), County budget director; Jennifer Roberts (@CommishJennifer), chairman of the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners; George Dunlap (@vote4dunlap), District 3 commissioner; and Chris Wannamaker, FreeMoreWest Partners.
Oh, FYI: I work for the neighborhood association here in FreeMoreWest but in the interest of public education, and in line with our previous budget discussion podcasts, the entire kickoff will be livestreaming on the cltblog channel.
