As Orange County Supervisors overseeing the management of county government, one of the greatest responsibilities we have concerns county finances and making the best decisions when it comes to our budget.
You, the public, are our best resource in determining the success or failure of our financial choices. I encourage everyone who is able to be a part of that conversation. This week will begin the public discussions of our strategic financial plan with hearings on the budget to follow next week.
Today, Friday, June 10th, the Orange County Board of Supervisors held a special meeting to discuss and evaluate county finances as well as the county’s financial plan before voting on the county Budget next week. The meeting held a thorough overview of the county’s financial future.
For those who wish to share concerns or comments join us for our public hearings on the FY 2016-2017 budget on Tuesday, June 14th, and Wednesday, June 15th, at 9:30 am. Our final budget vote is scheduled for the board meeting on Tuesday, June 28th.
Be a part of the conversation. The meetings will be held at the Hall of Administration Board Hearing Room at 333 W. Santa Ana Blvd., Santa Ana. Make sure to stay informed and know where your hard earned taxes are going.
