The Winder City Council is changing its budget process to comply with Georgia law following questions about the process from the Barrow Journal last week.
And for the first time in years, the city council will reportedly attend a public hearing on its annual budget. Whether the council will “conduct” the June 18 hearing, or just be in attendance, has not been confirmed.
A notice posted on the city’s website states that the City of Winder will hold a public hearing at 5 p.m. June 18 in the council chambers of the community center on East Athens Street.
The city council plans to vote on the budget at a 6 p.m. called meeting on June 29, at the community center, according to a notice posted late last week on the city’s website. State law requires a separation of seven days between the mandatory public hearing and the budget vote.
For the complete story, see the June 10 issue of the Barrow Journal.
apparently they have seen the light, Thanks barrow journal on the editorial about winder's dictatorship.it's real nice of them to comply with state law after all they too need to be held to the same standards as everyone else.
I think you meant to say Ernie Graham.But you are exactly right about Beck. He must have something on a lot of people, higher and lower than him, cause he sure does and gets what HE wants, not necessarily what is good for the city and its employees
