Winder residents, business owners and utility customers have an opportunity Thursday to tell the city’s elected officials what they think about the city’s proposed budget for FY2011.
The 5 p.m. public hearing at the Winder Community Center will be in front of the mayor and council. The budget is scheduled for adoption at the council’s June 8 meeting.
The proposed spending plan for the fiscal year starting July 1 includes multiple rate and fee hikes, as well as a newly established fee for environmental services that will appear on property tax bills in December. The amount of that fee has not been set, because a study is under way to determine the amount of “impervious” surface on each parcel. The fee will be based on each parcel’s impervious surface.
