District 6 site to be host for budget deliberations by Wayne County Commission members
The Wayne County Commission's Committee on Ways and Means will hold a public meeting on the proposed 2019-20 and 2020-21 county budgets 9 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 15, at the North Rosedale Park Community House, 18445 Scarsdale, Detroit.
"Drafting the budget is one of the most important things we do each year and we are striving to make the process as open to the public as possible," Commissioner Monique Baker McCormick (D-Detroit) said. Baker McCormick, who represents District 6, is a Ways and Means Committee member.
County Executive Warren Evans' recommended budget for 2019-20 is $1.6 billion, an increase of roughly $130 million from the present budget.
Ways and Means deliberations involve the county's operating budget, which includes individual budgets for all county departments, including public services, and the offices of the county sheriff, prosecutor, treasurer and register of deeds. The 2019-20 budget will take effect Oct. 1.
The hearing at the North Rosedale Park Community House is one of a series of budget meetings the Ways and Means Committee is holding this summer on the county budgets. Lunch will be served and the public is welcome.
