The Three Rivers City Commission will conduct a public hearing on the proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2011-12 during its regular meeting Tuesday evening (June 7th).
Scheduling of the hearing reflects the fact that the budget-making process underway in recent weeks, including special commission meetings on May 10th and 24th, is nearing an end.
The May 24th meeting yielded a consensus that gave direction to the administration for preparation of the proposed spending plan that will be the subject of the hearing.
