Big Muskegon County meeting tomorrow!

This is an important meeting!
Muskegon County Commissioners will meet in a "Planning Session" 1:00 tomorrow, Tuesday Mar. 22.

The meeting will be held at the old Baker College campus on Apple Ave. (near the corner of Apple and Spring St.) in the Training Center room 202.

It would be easiest to park in the lot behind the complex, just off Pine St.
Call me at 231-557-9912 if you need directions or any other info.

This is very important because chairman Mahoney requested an earlier start (1:00 rather than the usual 1:30) as they will be discussing options for a new jail (higher taxes?) and the county budget which will be in deep doo doo if the projected $1.2 million in state refunding is cut.
As is expected.
So this is a BIG TIME number crunch meeting that every Muskegon resident needs to attend.

Remember, when they operate without any citizen input, they operate for those who already have input and that's why we're broke.

Why are these "planning sessions" important?

Simply because the commissioners have chosen not to publicize these quarterly meetings.
And things get done in the dark.
They want to converse among themselves without us citizens intruding.

Well, I think we citizens ought to intrude because our leaders have driven our county to the brink of bankruptcy on their own.

Maybe we could help our commissioners avoid us all falling off this fiscal cliff?

So if you care about the direction of our county, please plan on attending.

All citizens are welcome!

I'll be at Carmen's at 12:00 if you want to meet and discuss before the meeting.

Then we'll go to the planning meeting.

There is also a full board meeting at 3:30 at the county building.
See you there!
