King County Executive Dow Constantine has unveiled his $5.3 billion proposed 2012 budget for the county, and highlighted a range of efficiencies he said his administration had achieved. The county council will review, possibly amend, and adopt the budget by November 21. There’s a way to have your say on the budget. If you live, work or go to school in King County, you’re invited to take an online survey by October 16 that will help the county shape its budget priorities.
The survey is sponsored by Countywide Community Forums, a privately supported civic engagement program run in conjunction with the King County Auditor’s Office. This is the eighth round of the community forums since the program began in 2007. The online survey includes an optional 10-minute video (below) and optional fact sheet that are built in.
