Mesa County’s proposed 2015 budget available for review http://www.mesacounty.us/finance
Budgeting and financial management is one of the most important aspects of local government operations. State law requires all local government budgets adopted by December 15. A final budget will be adopted by the Board of Commissioners at public hearing December 15, 2014 at 9 a.m.
You are invited to review the proposed budget and to submit comments on the proposed budget before December 8.
There are several ways you may submit comments:
· through Facebook/mesacounty;
· by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you email, please include the word “budget” in subject line; or
· in person at Board of County Commissioner Hearings, generally held every Monday morning at 9 a.m. at 544 Rood Avenue, Grand Junction CO. (Currently hearings are set for October 27, November 3, November 10, November 17, November 24, December 8. Comments on budget may be made during ‘unscheduled business.’ Board of Commissioner Hearing agendas may be found at http://www.mesacounty.us/BoCCagendas/)
To allow for processing and consideration, budget comments will be accepted through December 8, 2014. Although Public Comment is welcome at all hearings, to ensure consideration before the final Budget is noticed to the public, comments should be made before December 8.
