Morris County Budget Input Wanted at Public Meeting

Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites residents to speak their minds to committee members.

The Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders is asking for the public's input on the 2013 county budget currently being drafted and has invited members of the public and municipal leaders to share their opinions with the Budget Subcommittee.

The subcommittee will be hosting a budget session on Feb. 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Knox Room, fifth floor, of the county Administration and Records Building on Court Street in Morristown.

"The freeholder’s budget committee has been meeting on a regular basis for nearly a year and is now in the process of formulating the final spending plan for introduction in the next few weeks," according to a press release sent by Joe Garifo, public information officer for the freeholders.

Additionally, Budget Subcommittee Chair Freeholder Hank Lyon, Freeholder Director Thomas Mastrangelo and committee member Freeholder John Krickus will be available prior to the regular public freeholder meeting on that day to talk to county residents or elected officials about their ideas or concerns regarding county spending.

“We think it’s important that citizens have a better understanding of the county’s budget process,” Lyon said.  “The freeholders once again are wrestling with some very difficult budget decisions. We continue to thoroughly examine all county government programs, and we welcome any thoughts the public and municipal officials may have about county spending.” 

Anyone who would like to have their input included but is unable to attend the budget session can write to the freeholders and send letters to the Morris County Administrator's Office, P.O. Box 900, Morristown, NJ, 07963 or email jgarifo@co.morris.nj.us.

Not a dime's worth of difference between Karl and Barack, both are class warriors and redistributors of the wealth. His Plan A, B and C for everything is to make the rich pay more and more and more . . . . The mobile rich will get richer, and the rest will just carry the 47% - http://www.cnbc.com/id/100446634

You artfully avoided calling Obama a Capitalist because you know he isn't one. America used to be about making sure all had an Equal Opportunity. The rest was up to You. Obama is all about making everyone's bank accounts Equal through government redistribution of the wealth. That's the definition of Socialism.
