Gwinnett begins 2019 budget preparation

Gwinnett elected officials, department directors, and agency heads recently began presenting their business plans and financial resource requests for budget year 2019. The presentations were heard by the budget review team made up of five Gwinnett residents who were invited by Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash to help set priorities and make recommendations for the proposed budget. The review team includes Keith Roche, Alida Sims, David Cuffie, Norwood Davis and Santiago Marquez.

According to Chairmen Nash, “Each team member brings a different perspective to the table, which is important as we listen to budgetary needs and plans for the future, review revenue projections and prepare the proposed budget.”
