Board to hold public hearing tonight on proposed budget; opportunities for citizen engagement
Due to a problem with the County’s hosted website solution, the HAN regarding tonight’s public hearing that was sent out on Friday did not arrive in mailboxes until today. The Board of Supervisors will hold its public hearing on the proposed Fiscal year 2021 budget and related items at 7 p.m. tonight. Given the current restrictions on public gatherings and need for social distancing, Hanover County is asking that all who wish to speak on these matters provide their comments online or on the phone. Comments will be collected in the following manner:
- By phone, you can leave your comment on the budget by calling 365-3333. A limit of three minutes per comment will be observed. This phone line will be active until the beginning of the Board meeting.
- You also can email your comments to BudgetPublicHearing@hanovercounty.gov.
All comments will be shared with the Board and published in summary in the minutes of the April 1 Board meeting. If necessary, you may attend the public hearing in person, but social distancing and limitations on the number of people in the Board Room at any one time will be observed. These guidelines are subject to change at any time pending recommendations from health officials.
