Our greatest influence as citizens is at the local level. As I said on Sunday, this is a busy week, and one of the most important things happening is tonight’s special Assembly meeting on the budget at 5:00 PM at the Assembly Chambers and the Finance Committee meeting right after it.
Some of the things on tonight’s agenda include: the 2017 mill rate, school district funding, and the capital improvement program. Here is a link to the agenda; note that it is a download link and will ask you to save a PDF to your computer.
There is a public participation portion, but I’m not sure on whether public participation is allowed on agenda items.
