06/04/07 80 W - + 16 - 7 Public Hearings on County Budget Today

Today's News & Observer notes that the county Board of Commissioners are holding two public hearings on the proposed budget. The first is at 2 p.m. at the Wake County Courthouse Board Room, Room 700. The second is at 7 p.m. in the Commons Building, Wake County Office Park, 4011 Carya Drive. Now is the time to stand up and be counted regarding staffing, spending, and anything else you like or don't like about the proposed budget.

Did anyone stand up and speak against spending millions to replace functional fire stations while NO new personnel were added to the County? I wasn’t there – but I have spoken.

ok, we agree on something, Yes people spoke about the station, they spoke about staffing. it was evident that the majority of the room did not want the station and wanted staffing, However the fire commission is not just made up of firefighters. You have 2 elected officials, 4 community members, and then the rest are fire related. I believe the vote went 5 to 4. Yes very upsetting. I am not saying that a new station is not needed, but we need staffing in the county before we need replacing a station….That’s my opinion.

How does one contact their elected (county) officials, to offer input outside of such hearings? Turns out there are several sanctioned ways as detailed here: http://www.wakegov.com/commissioners/con...
