(April 23, 2015) Worcester County Commissioners Diana Purnell and Ted Elder invite area residents to join them for a town hall meeting Thursday, April 23, at 6 p.m. at the Multipurpose Building on Flower Street in Berlin.
Chief Administrative Officer Harold Higgins will give a brief presentation on the FY16 Requested Worcester County Operating Budget. Requested general fund operating expenditures of $189,825,601 exceed estimated revenues of $167,485,109 by $22 million. This difference must be reconciled by reducing expenditures, generating additional revenues or a combination of the two.
A question and answer session will follow the presentation. The purpose of this meeting is to familiarize residents with county finances in advance of the annual public budget hearing on Tuesday, May 5 at 7 p.m. in the Snow Hill Middle School auditorium.
