Ann Mallek’s Town Hall meetings.

Ann Mallek's Town Hall meetings in November.

Our county supervisor, Ann Mallek has scheduled a series of town hall meetings in November on the county’s five-year plan, its process and other topics of interest.  The plan combines schools, general government and capital improvements into a financial plan and framework used for annual county budgets.

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.

The meetings date, time, and locations are:

  • Tuesday, November 18 from 7:00  to 9:00 PM at Henley Middle School with Supervisor Liz Palmer;
  • Thursday, November 20 from 7:00  to 9:00 PM at Broadus Wood Elementary School with Supervisor Brad Sheffield;
  • Saturday, November 22, from 10 AM to noon at the White Hall Community Center.

Plan to attend one of these meetings to hear about the plan and provide your feedback and thoughts.
