COMMISSIONERS EVALUATE STATE OF THE COUNTY, EMPLOYEE TALENT SHOW, NEW CAR TAX RULES ON MARCH MECKLENBURG FORUM
Charlotte, NC-In the past, the State of the County Address has been a speech delivered by the Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners. This time, Chairman Tom Cox included comments by each board member. Those thoughts lead Mecklenburg Forum when it debuts Thursday night, March 6 at 7 p.m. on The Government Channel.
How the state will translate into the FY04 budget is addressed by County Manager Harry Jones. In Mecklenburg Forum's Conversation with the County Manager, Jones talks about what challenges he is facing while developing a recommended budget for next year.
On a lighter note, Mecklenburg Forum also features highlights from the recent City/County Talent Show. The annual fundraiser for the Arts and Science Council brings out a side of government workers that may surprise you.
Mecklenburg Forum airs Thursday nights at 7 p.m. on The Government Channel. It can also be seen prior to regularly scheduled Board of County Commission meetings at 6 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. The show airs daily at 7 p.m. on GOV-TV, Time Warner Digital Cable 232 and on March 9 at 3:30 p.m. on WTVI TV-42, Time Warner Cable 5.
