Commissioners to hold series of budget workshops

RELEASE DATE: November 26, 2012

TAVARES — The Lake County Board of County Commissioners will begin holding a series of upcoming budget workshops starting in December in order to prepare for the Fiscal Year 2014 budget.

The workshops will focus on key programs within the organization, and will help facilitate discussion on funding of the programs during continued periods of revenue declines for the County.

“Our goal is to begin the process of discussing major elements in the budget early, so that the Board will have time to plan funding for programs that have a large fiscal impact for the upcoming budget year,” said Commission Chairman Leslie Campione.

The workshops will be held in the Board Chambers, located on the second floor of the Lake County Administrative Building, 315 W. Main St., Tavares.  The tentative schedule is as follows:

Date

 Time  Subject
Tuesday, Dec. 4  9 a.m., or shortly thereafter  General budget overview/review
Tuesday, Dec. 4 1:30 p.m. Sheriff/Jail
Tuesday, Dec. 18  1:30 p.m. Public Transportation
Tuesday, Jan. 8 1:30 p.m. Parks and Libraries
Tuesday, Jan. 22  1:30 p.m. Other budget issues as needed
Tuesday, Feb. 12  1:30 p.m. Budget guidelines

The workshops will be open to the public, and residents and business owners are invited to attend.  The workshops will also be streamed live on the County’s website at http://lakecountyfl.suiteonemedia.com/web/home.aspx.
