June is Town Hall month for administrator

St. Johns County Administrator Michael Wanchick invites all Historic City News readers in St. Johns County to attend one of several local Town Hall meetings scheduled during June.

Wanchick will give a presentation on the State of St. Johns County, focusing on the Fiscal Year 2011 budget. He will also discuss challenges facing the County over the next several years, including funding options and quality of life considerations.

The goal of the Town Hall meetings is not only to present information to citizens, but more importantly to hear back from the community regarding their desires for St. Johns County.

A strong community dialogue began with last year’s Town Hall meetings, and Wanchick believes it is crucial to continue that dialogue as the County Commission faces more difficult decisions in the future. Citizens may provide feedback at the Town Hall meetings, or they may leave a voice message by calling 209-1202.

“The good news is that we do not anticipate a millage rate or tax increase this year,” Wanchick said. “However, as the County’s revenues continue to decline and the demand for services is increasing, public feedback is very important.

The input received during last year’s Town Hall meetings significantly influenced the final adopted budget. Next year’s budget, as well as the future direction of St. Johns County, truly should reflect the desires of our community.”
