Board Members to Host Town Hall Meetings

Board members are holding a series of town hall meetings to inform the public about the Five-Year Plan process and to receive constituent feedback. The Five-Year Plan brings together the three major components of the County budget - schools, general government, and capital improvements - and seeks to balance anticipated revenues and expenditures for the next five years to inform annual budget development.

The preliminary five-year financial plan currently projects an $8.1 million gap between projected revenues and identified "catching up" and "keeping up" expenditures for local government and schools for the next fiscal year. That gap that would increase to a $26 million gap by fiscal year 2020. Supervisors are conducting town hall meetings during November and early December to get public feedback about strategies for filling the projected gap, which could range from eliminating services and scaling back expectations to adjusting the tax rate or considering special tax districts.


Brad Sheffield, who represents the Rio District, will host a town hall meeting focused on the Five-Year Plan at the Hollymead Fire Station on Friday, November 14, from 6 - 7:30 pm. Community members will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss areas of concern and interest.
