Pre-Budget Workshops Announced

Following the Commissions previously established procedure of holding Lauderhill Pre-Budget Workshops, the following schedule was announced.

1) Veterans Park - March 2 at 7:00 PM, primarily for Inverrary Association, and the Inverrary Homeowners Association;
2) Main Fire Station (2nd Floor Multi-purpose Room) - March 3 at 7:00 PM, primarily for Lauderhill Central Residents Association;
3) Veterans Park - March 9 at 7:00 PM, primarily for the Northwest Lauderhill Neighbors' Association;
4) West Ken Lark Community Center - March 10 at 7:00 PM, primarily for St. George, West Ken Lark and Broward Estates;
5) Sadkin Community Center - March 15 at 7:00 PM, primarily for United Lauderhill Homeowners Association.

The purpose of the workshops is to present to in each area those matters which are being planned for that region of the city. It is requested that the public provide comments, pro and con, and input of any budget matter which affects them, including matters which had not been considered previously. Residents from any part of the city may attend any of the workshops, and may comment about any budget throughout the city. However, the concentration of that evenings workshop will be on the area designated.

Following these workshops, the staff shall prepare a budget for the upcoming 2006-7 budget year, to be present at the July Budget Workshops. The date and time for that workshop has not be set as of yet. In September, the Commission will have two votes on the budget for the upcoming year based upon the work from these workshops.

If any wishes to make an impact on the future of Lauderhill, attending and providing comment at this time would be the best time to do so.
