What this blog is for

This is an independent citizens' blog developed to facilitate online communication during virtual Town Hall meetings held by Sarasota County.

The first of these meetings is to be held on Monday, June 8, beginning at 6:30 p.m. There's more information here and also below. The subject is the county budget, and the idea is to hold an open conversation between county officials and the public. The first topic is the county budget, and some of the links to the right go to relevant portions of the county web site.

During the meeting on Monday, we'll be live-blogging the event, and the comments section will be open for public input. Please join us, and keep an eye on this space -- this is but the first of  a series of virtual meetings.
