Montrose, COLO.— The Montrose Board of County Commissioners invites the public to the annual Public Budget Meeting on Wednesday, October 10th at 5:30pm. As part of a county budget process, the county meets annually for the County Manager’s budget presentation to the board. County Manager Ken Norris and the county’s finance team led by Director Cindy Dunlap and Assistant Director Lanny Paulson, have been meeting for months with elected officials, division directors, and department heads to fine-tune operations budgets, discuss capital and personnel requests for 2019, and more. The result is the county manager’s draft budget that is presented to the board for consideration. The board will then repeat the same budget meetings with division directors and elected officials in order to ask questions and make cuts as needed.
“I am proud of the work of my team in preparing this comprehensive budget,” said County Manager Ken Norris. “The budget guides the actions of the county for 2019 and provides an opportunity for the commissioners to prioritize projects based on our core services.”
The public budget meeting will be held on October 10th at the board room at 161 South Townsend Ave. In the past, the meeting has been hosted at the Pioneer Room, but moving the location to the current board room will offer live and on-demand streaming video options.
