Residents invited to county budget forum

Pinellas County officials, in partnership with St. Petersburg College, will hold a budget community forum Wednesday at the SPC Seminole campus.

County officials will attend an open house in the school's Digitorium from 5:30 to 7 p.m. From 7 to 8 p.m., a live etownhall will be presented inside the Digitorium and online.

There are five ways to participate in the event: be present in the Digitorium; blog on; call (888) 886-6603; tweet #pinellasetown; and watch online or on PCC-TV (Bright House channel 622, Knology channel 18 or Verizon channel 44).
