Opportunities to participate in September public budget hearings

Here's your last opportunity to be heard before the FY 2015-16 budgets are adopted by local governments.  BikeWalkLee recently submitted a letter to the Lee BoCC with its comments on the 2015-16 budget.
Every September, local governments throughout Florida are holding their two required public budget hearings.  This is an opportunity to communicate with elected officials both on the County Commission and in each of the 6 local municipalities about your views on the how the government is spending your tax dollars and what public investments are most important to you.  If you are unable to attend the public hearings, you can always write or call your elected officials.

In addition to the required September public hearings, the Lee BoCC is holding its last budget workshop on Tuesday, Sept. 1st at 1:30 p.m. (County Chambers).  Note: that unlike other BoCC workshops where no public input is allowed, the agenda for this workshop includes an item at the end for public input.  Click here for the agenda package.
