Below is a letter from Margaret Roach, Volunteer Services Manager for the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System:
“¢itizen $ense” Project: Join the Conversation
Fulton County is asking residents to share their “two cents” about the 2012 budget during a series of “¢itizen $ense” sessions. All residents are invited to be part of the conversation.
For those residents who stifle a yawn at the thought of government finance, the sessions will include a brief video presentation about the County budget and programs. After the video, participants divide into groups and allocate their “County cash” to the programs that matter most to them.
All feedback from the sessions will be documented and provided to the Board of Commissioners.
¢itizen $ense Meeting Schedule:
North Fulton Chamber of Commerce,
Chamber, Diamond Hall
· . - 1:00 p.m.
Public Broadcasting, 260 14th Street, NW,
Residents who cannot attend in person will have later opportunities to give their feedback as part of a ¢itizen $ense online survey, a Facebook survey, and Tweet casts. For updates, go to www.fultoncountyga.gov/citizensense or follow on Twitter @FultonInfo.
Take the online survey now! Budget Reference Information. Residents planning to attend the sessions may wish to review some of the following background documents in preparation for the session: 2011 Budget-in-Brief and 2012-2014 Proposed Strategic Plan found at www.fultoncountyga.gov.
