PUBLIC HEARING ON DRAFT BUDGET @3PM:
-Draft budget presentation
Editorial comment: BOCC meetings tend to be very brief (today’s meeting was 30 minutes in length), and scheduling workshops/study sessions several hours after the BOCC meeting makes it difficult for citizens who must commit to waiting for several hours between meetings in order to attend these follow-up sessions. Consequently, I did not attend the Land Use hearings or the Budget hearing today.
