Douglas County commissioners today will work through a loaded agenda that includes public discussion of the 2012 budget and a public hearing regarding plans to fund the Social and Rehabilitation Services office in Lawrence.
Commissioners will entertain public comment on the two items at the group’s 6:35 p.m. meeting. The proposal regarding the SRS office is a joint effort by the city and county to keep what they believe to be vital community services from being relocated. Both local governments would help fund the program through the next two years, during which time the office is expected to work to find other sources of income.
The County Commission will also open the floor for discussion regarding the 2012 county budget, which does not involve raising the mill levy.
The Douglas County Commission meets every Wednesday at 4 p.m. and 6:35 p.m. at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass.
