Why is the budget a SECRET?

October 17th, 2013 at Thu, 17th, 2013 at 6:33 pm by Jerry Galland

 

Have you ever known of a public agency to produce PERSONALIZED draft budgets for everyone in the room?

 

And then force you to use only that one for a Public Hearing?

 

Is this so they can control the information?

Or does each budget have different information and they wanted to make sure YOU only saw what they wanted you to see?

How strange. Very Strange indeed.

I am active in the arena of government accountability. In order to stay on the pulse and help keep the public informed, without compensation, I have attended every regular meeting and almost every Special meeting of the Board of Commissioners since October 2010.
