Two Important Meetings! One is TONIGHT!

The Board of County Supervisors is holding a meeting to approve 2009 budget items. It is crucial everyone in the county be heard, especially because the budget it so tight this year with the decline of the housing market.

We need people to speak Tuesday night, April 22nd, at citizen's time. Last time, we had to arrive at 6:30 to sign up. There is usually a line, so it's worth showing up early to get a seat inside. Citizens usually speak between 7:30 and 8:00.

What are we speaking about?

*the budget cuts to schools, libraries, fire, rescue, human services, ARC and other programs that cannot function adequately under the current budget;

*that we should have some say in what the priorities of this county should be, and right now, we don't because a vocal minority has monopolized the conversation and the attention of the BOCS.

The meeting will take place in the BOCS Chambers:

McCoart Administration Building

1 County Complex Court (Prince William Parkway)
Prince William, VA 22192

If you can't come to speak, please call, fax or email your concerns and budget requests to everyone on the Board of County Supervisors. Better yet, do all three! The information is below.

Thank you for helping remind the BOCS that we care about the democratic process in our community.
