The Chairman refusing to publish a draft of the budget before the hearings didn’t get any more people to show up. Only a handful of people where there who didn’t work for the county, and no citizens spoke. I still don’t see the budget on the county’s website, two weeks later. I guess you can look at the LAKE video of Finance Director Stephanie Black’s presentation and hope it has the parts you want to see.
We didn’t know about the first budget hearing on 17 June 2014, but here are videos of the 24 June 2014 budget hearing.
Here’s a video playlist:
