Dear Democratic friends,
Our county commissioners are in the final stages of preparing the FY 2015-2016 County Budget. The budget is our fiscal blueprint and a tool for executing policy and implementing our values at the county level. Given that this is our first budget with our new leadership team and the 2015-2016 budget will set the tone for the future; it is imperative that we advocate for our values and support the commissioners in their efforts to fund critical programs that are in our platform and positive for the community.
On June 15th the final budget for 2015-2016 will be voted on and passed.
We will convey the results of the survey to our commissioners, but remember that time is of the essence so we need your input today.
Below you will find eight areas of interest/issues where we can make a difference this year and in the future.
1. Affordable Housing - Points to Consider
2. Public Transit
3. Chatham County Municipal Fund
4. The Human Relations Commission
5. The Bookmobile
6. Extended library hours
7. Arts and creative culture
8. Protections for our environment
