It’s hard to believe that I was sworn in just 7 months ago to the Fuquay-Varina Board of Commissioners. It’s been a whirlwind of activity! It started with my fellow Commissioners, Town Manager, and Town Department Heads sitting down individually to brief me. I learned in detail about the services, finances, issues, and future plans for each department. I was even able to tour all the town facilities and meet many of our Town Employees.
Just as I was feeling like I knew enough to be dangerous, we kicked off the FY2013 Budget process with a Town Retreat. More work sessions and committee meetings followed, ending with the completion and passing of the Town budget early in June.
Now that I have participated in the full budget cycle, I thought it important to report back to the citizens with what I have learned. I hope to be able to publish a regular unofficial report about every 3 months.
