If you ever wanted to give your elected Guilford County leaders your two cents worth – well, there’s no better time than early June to do it.
That’s because, before the county adopts its new fiscal budget in mid to late June, the Guilford County Board of Commissioners always holds a public hearing to gather all the advice from the vocal folks in the county.
The proposed 2021-2022 Guilford County budget has now been submitted by the county manager to the county commissioners and the board has set this year’s public hearing on that proposed budget for Thursday, June 3 at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be in the Commissioners’ second-floor meeting room of the Old Guilford County Court House at 301 W. Market St. in Greensboro.
According to the meeting announcement, it “will be held for the purpose of discussing the proposed FY 2021-2022 budget and to give all interested citizens the opportunity to make written and oral comments on the budget.”
It adds that senior citizens are encouraged to attend.
The meeting announcement also states that “handicapped persons planning to attend who need assistance or aid” should contact the county manager’s office at 641-3383 before the meeting.
The 2021-2022 proposed budget that totals $617 million may be examined at the county’s website at www.guilfordcountync.gov, It can also be seen on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. in the office of the Clerk to the Board of County Commissioners. That office is on the second-floor of the old courthouse across the foyer from where the commissioners meetings take place. Walk in and talk to JJ or Katredia and they will hook you up with a copy of the budget.
Somebody please ask for more medics
Its really simple, spend the money on ways that will help ALL the citizens of Greensboro. PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got a question. Why not just give it back & say Thank You but NO THANK YOU. Put it against the Debt.
How about giving all taxpayers a tax reduction, versus give away programs to local non-profits that always have some political motive behind them.
A tax refund would literally be a give away. Literally.
That’s “give back” which politicians don’t understand.
Hey numb star do you own property in the county just curious. How wow tax reduction be a give away you’re giving back to taxpayers what they’ve already paid to the county. You’re an idiot
It’s OUR money. We can probably make better decisions about how we spend our money than the city will make.
The tax payers are paying for it.
Why are they deciding on a dollar amount BEFORE deciding on the Budget? Shouldn’t the Budget items be itemized with the dollar amounts coming up to the total needed and then if they don’t have enough there are cuts made or budget increases?
If the Budget is already set then they’ve already decided how to spend the money and don’t care what citizens think. They don’t plan on listening to “all citizens” even though they’ll give them the opportunity to send in comments.
This process is so tiring. Nothing changes, money is wasted (half a million on a PR group) while needed funding never happens (more paramedics/deputies/animal control).
Because that mayor and council do whatever they want .. they’re usually busy helping one another get things like giving a whole fleet of city owned vehicles to a fellow council member for her “nonprofit “ or giving $900,000 to another council member’s “non profit “ …. and the residents of Greensboro just blithely going about their days while that mayor and council do any thing and every thing they want and since every one of them is a democrat —— there’s no one to snitch on them
Name nuts I think you would be the first to vote for a george floyd national holiday
The more money they have, the more money they will spend. There is NO fiscal responsibility in Guilford County. Reduce property taxes and refund our money.
Just give it to the people of Guilford County,they’ll show you how to handle excess money.A whole lot better than those ole County commissioners will.They will pick and choose the all projects that do not need a handout from the taxpayers.Put the money to good use /the people.
I agree with everyone about everything. Lunacy abounds…..
Help everyone that needs the help and give to the to the ones who lost jobs, health care, school funding, and fix the roads. I feel that alot of people have got help but not enough. It seems like They forget about the collage kids and the single people who are in need too.
