Video: Budget Overview Summary Session @ LCC Budget 2017-05-22

Update 2017-06-26: the rest of the LAKE videos of this meeting. They’re discussing this budget this morning and voting on it Tuesday 27 June 2017.

“You have the packets that have been provided for you in regards budget,”, said County Chairman Bill Slaughter, but the taxpayers do not have that packet for this meeting that was not on the county calendar until this morning, had no agenda, and only popped up online also that same yesterday morning of this Budget Work Session.

This is the summary given by Finance Director Stephanie Black; more videos to come also included. The good news: Black said the budget is balanced.

If Gretchen hadn’t been there with the LAKE camera, you may have never known they were talking about what to do with your tax dollars. She did dash upstairs an file and Open Records Request for the board packet. The County Clerk then said they would put that online. We shall see.

Here are links to each LAKE video, followed by a video playlist.
