Hall County Government will hold a Budget Forum on Monday, May 18 and Tuesday, May 19, which will provide an additional opportunity for the public to gain insight into budget requests submitted by various County departments and agencies for fiscal year 2016. The forum will be held both days from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Commission Meeting Room of the Hall County Government Center, located at 2875 Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville.
“The intent of the forum is to provide for meaningful discussion between department and agency representatives and the Board of Commissioners and to ensure clarity of the budget requests as submitted prior to the formal budget hearings and adoption in June,” said Hall County Administrator Randy Knighton.
Budget hearings are tentatively scheduled to coincide with the Hall County Board of Commissioners meetings on June 11 and June 25. The Hall County Board of Commissioners must approve a budget by June 30, as the new fiscal year begins July 1.
Any citizen requesting additional information regarding the development of the FY 2016 budget is asked to contact Hall County Financial Services at 770-535-8270.
