Yamhill County Invites Public Input at June 13 Budget Hearing, Comments Accepted via Email, MailSource: M.O. Stevens, CC BY 3.0, via Wikimedia Commons

Attention, Yamhill County residents: It's time to have your say on the local budget. Officials have announced a public hearing scheduled for June 13, at 10 a.m. At this session, set to take place in the Yamhill County Courthouse and online through Zoom, the Board of Commissioners will lay out the financial blueprint for the upcoming fiscal year. The details, for those looking to get a head start or for those unable to attend, are already available for scrutiny on the county's website, as confirmed by the Yamhill County.

Yamhill's community members are encouraged to immerse themselves in the numbers and plans which, importantly, have been crafted along the same accounting lines as the previous cycle. One key detail to consider and perhaps raise during the hearing is how the financial doctrine held constant could shape our communal path forward.

The upcoming gathering marks an opportunity for civic engagement, where voices can be heard before the Board makes the ultimate decisions, and in a democracy, the value of this cannot be overstated even though for many the allure of fiscal charts and tax allocations might not hold the same immediate charm as other community happenings, it's in these details that the shape of everyday life is formed and reformed.

For those preferring the written word, comments can be sent directly to County Administrator Kenneth Huffer ahead of the powwow; email [email protected] or mail might be your avenue to impact, as per Yamhill County.
