The date where Commissioners CAN vote to reconsider the millage rate.
7 Commissioners can vote to reconsider, then revote again to raise the millage.
Our Mayor has made it clear that if 9 do not vote in our favor, he will use his veto power.
September 10 is the ONLY day for our County Commissioners to set the millage rate to FULLY FUND our Libraries! An average increase of $20 more for the entire year for our libraries is WORTH IT and the Commissioners MUST know this.
Come out and show up!
In regards to SPEAKING at the Sept 10 Budget Meeting:
There will be a table OUTSIDE about 3:00 or 3:30PM to register people to speak during the budget meeting.
Plan on coming early and staying late!
We hope to have EVERYONE speak at the Budget Hearing
Again, we must reiterate — if you have stayed quiet before, make this the one exception. Make this the time you have your voice heard by the ones who can actually CHANGE the course of the future for the Library System!
The meeting begins a 5:01 PM and all speakers will be heard.
PLEASE BE SURE TO ARRIVE EARLY TO GET A SEAT!
This is PUBLIC forum, but we want to be sure that EVERYONE who wants to speak gets a chance to do so! This will be our LAST chance to convince the Commissioners all at once that we are willing to pay the increase! If you have not spoken before, NOW will be the time to do so!
Let us show our Commission that the VOICE of the PEOPLE is what governs our County–not the actions of a Strong Mayor!
