The Fall Meeting of the County Council Coalition Is Very Important

The County Council Coalition will review the policy positions drafted by the Association’s four policy steering committees (County Government and Intergovernmental Relations; Land Use, Natural Resources and Transportation; Public Safety, Corrections and Judicial; and Revenue, Finance and Economic Development). Input given at the Coalition meeting will be incorporated into the position papers for review by the steering committees when they meet again in November. These recommendations will be presented at the Legislative Conference for action by the Legislative Committee. The positions adopted by the Legislative Committee will become SCAC’s official policy positions.

Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m., and the meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. A short business session will also be held to elect officers for 2017-2018. The meeting includes a luncheon. 

The Participation of ALL County Council Members Is Crucial
The 2018 Session of the General Assembly will be a critical one as more initiatives affecting property taxation and our counties' fiscal and home rule authority will be debated. We must be prepared to tackle these issues.
