Pinellas has session to talk with taxpayers about the budget

With money still tight, Pinellas County officials are taking a closer look at services as they begin the process for creating the 2012-13 budget.

One of the first steps is to hear taxpayers' thoughts on the budget forecast and the community's vision. The County Commission will hold a community forum on Tuesday to do just that. The forum will give residents a chance to talk one-on-one with commissioners and Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala early in the evening. After that, the commission will hold a live eTownHall.

The event will be held in the Digitorium on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College, 9200 113th St. N. It will kick off with an open house from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. After a 15-minute break, the eTownHall will be held from 7 to 8 p.m.

Taxpayers can attend and submit questions. Residents can also call toll-free, 1-888-886-6603, conference number 18273, to listen in and submit questions. Some residents may also receive a phone call. The event will be broadcast live on PCC-TV (Bright House channel 622, Knology channel 18, or Verizon channel 44). Residents can also follow the event on Twitter and submit questions using the hashtag #pinellasetown. Or residents can blog on Blogging opens at 9 a.m. Monday and will stay open through the forum.

For information, call (727) 464-4600.
