What is your opinion on the Town of Fenwick Island's budget process? Do you believe the public has enough input in the process? Do you feel the town has seriously erred in not conducting annual financial audits? Voice your opinion here.

Budget process? The town council has a budget process? All that I witnessed at the council meeting was a couple of sheets of data that did not resemble any budget that I have ever seen, and then the council rubber stamped it without discussion or an input process from the citizens. Hooterville lives!!!

ANY town, especially one with a budget of over $1,000,000, should have an annual financial audit by an outside, independent firm. When this audit is completed, the Town of F.I. should make a representative of the auditing firm available at a public meeting for questions and comments from the public. Also, copies of the audit should be made available at Town Hall for review--at no charge to the public-- prior to this meeting. The results of the "special audit" of the police dept. should be made public at this time.
The Town's recent process of holding 1 budget workshop with no public input, then passing out the budget info just prior to the Town meeting when the budget is to be approved must change. If Council feels that a budget workshop with the public present but not participating is a first step, that's fine. But then follow up with other meetings with public participation. Publish a summary of the proposed budget and hold some public hearings to get the citizens' input. It's our money being spent.
The recent rash of executive sessions shows that this Council can meet on matters it deems important. Let's hope the next budget process warrants more than 1 workshop.
