Though it's a short week at many government offices across Orange County, the county's public bodies are staying busy. Both the Chapel Hill Town County and the county school board will consider their budgets for the next fiscal year, while the Carrboro Board of Alderpersons will tackle parking. The Hillsborough Town Board will consider two specific projects, while the County Commission will consider its 2014 legislative agenda and discuss rural curbside recycling again.
We hope you'll use this open thread to post your thoughts and reactions. Also, if you want to propose additional discussion topics, you can reach the editors during the forum via Twitter, Facebook, or the contact page. The forum moderator will have final say in question selection.
Budgets and facilities planning will top the agendas of many of Orange County's public bodies this week. The Chapel Hill Town Council will receive an update from the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools on facilities planning, while both the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education and the County Commission will work on priorities for upcoming budget years. The County Commission will also hear an update on the County Manager's proposed capital investment plan.
