Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon will host a community meeting with constituents to discuss the proposed 2014 county budget and how it could impact residents. The meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26 at Hamburg Public Library, 102 Buffalo St., Hamburg. Residents are welcome to stop in anytime during the duration of the meeting.

 

“The county’s proposed budget totals $1.4 billion and is a complex document that can be confusing for many residents. I receive many inquiries during the budget process about possible cuts, the tax rate and how services will be impacted in the coming year. Understanding that constituents have many questions and concerns, I have scheduled a budget meeting in the district to provide residents the opportunity to share their thoughts and ask questions,” said Legislator Dixon. “I look forward to discussing the budget in detail with taxpayers to help them understand exactly how their taxes are being spent.”

 

Legislator Dixon also reminds residents that the Legislature’s public hearing on the budget will begin at 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25 in Legislative Chambers, 92 Franklin St., Buffalo, Fourth Floor. Anyone wishing to speak is welcome.
