The Winnebago County Board of Supervisors will meet on Tuesday morning to finalize the 2022-23 Fiscal Year Budget. The process requires the board to first hold a public hearing on the budget. This will allow the public to voice concerns about how taxpayer dollars are being spent and where, plus give the public a chance to understand the costs of county government operation. Those who cannot be at the hearing person can call in at (641) 591-6903 and use participant code 149935. They can also view the meeting online at www.winnebagocountyiowa.gov/
The board will then close the hearing and approve the resolution calling for the approval of the new budget. Once approved, the budget will go into effect beginning July 1st.
