Riley County commissioners have postponed public hearings for the 2023 countywide, and Fire District No. 1 proposed budgets. County Clerk Rich Vargo explains.
The new Revenue Neutral Rate (RNR) and the adoption of a proposed budget are separate procedures. The RNR procedure was followed correctly, so those public hearings were still held Monday morning. The commissioners unanimously resolved to approve the RNRs.
The proposed budget was published in the Manhattan Mercury prior to being audited. Vargo says they’ve already scheduled the revised publication.
Both the overall county and the Fire District 1 2023 proposed-budget public hearings are now scheduled for 9:45 a.m. on October 3rd.
