Do you have an item on your county board or city council meeting agendas in the months before your budget submitall? We have a budget planning survey in the spring together with a budget planning session. The time between May and August is primarily spent working with department heads and committees on budget preparations.
I am wondering if keeping the door open to budget input, from board and public members, at meetings would be advisable? If you do this now what format does the agenda item look like?
Thank you for your input.
