C. BUDGET HEARING
As per ORS 294.453 the governing body must hold a budget hearing on the date specified in the public notice to receive citizen's testimony on the budget.
Speaker(s):  Ashley Netzel/Jim Scherzinger
Description:  The budget committee approved the 2021/22 budget on  May 24th.  Since that time, resources and requirements have shifted and staff recommends some changes that will be presented for Board consideration in detail under "New Business" later tonight.  Considered together, the recommended changes are significant enough that the public must be afforded an additional opportunity to comment.  This hearing provides that opportunity for public comment so the Board will have that input for later discussion.
 
Recommended actions:
 
Chair
-  Open the budget hearing
-  Ask the Board Secretary if there is any comment on the budget.
-  Adjourn the Budget Hearing
-  Resume the regular Board meeting.
