Pollitt to Hold “Public Hearing” on FY 2013 Budget for Wicomico County

SALISBURY, MD – Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt will hold a “Public Hearing” on his proposed FY 2013 operating budget.

WHO:
OFFICE OF THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE

WHAT:
PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE: PROPOSED OPERATING BUDGET

WHEN:
THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2012 @ 7:00 PM

WHERE:
WICOMICO YOUTH & CIVIC CENTER – FLANDERS ROOM
500 GLEN AVENUE, SALISBURY

We are placing “Public Hearing” in quotes because this really isn’t a public hearing.  Like the Board of Education’s “public hearings” on budget, this is really a dog and pony show for people to come and say “don’t cut my pet program”.  It is highly unlikely that copies of the actual budget will even be available for examination at the “hearing”, much less prior to the hearing.

How are citizens expected to make intelligent comment on a budget when they can’t even see it prior to the hearing?
