FALL + FINANCING: A PERFECT PAIRING
It's the first day of fall, which means pumpkin spice and everything nice for most. But around here, it means business. Specifically, financial business.
October marks the official start of our annual financial analysis and 2018 budget discussions. Each year, we host a public hearing on the proposed 2018 budget, but only about a dozen residents participate. This year, we're offering several opportunities for you to interact with our financial experts and Board members so you go into the next year with a good understanding of our budget priorities.
Please mark your calendars; we hope you can join us for one or more of the following events or meetings, all of which will take place at the Community Center: 7404 Yorkshire Dr.
Wednesday, October 4 at 6 p.m.
