As a board member on the Columbia Association, I have the opportunity to submit new operating initiatives and new capital projects that are important to our community. Note CA spends around 70 million dollars per year.
I have to submit my proposals by close of business on Wednesday, September 6, 2017. The new initiatives and major capital projects, as well as those submitted by the community stakeholders and staff will be the basis for the October 12, 2017 work session. During that work session, straw votes are taken for each new initiative and each budget request to determine if that item should be included in the proposed draft FY 2019 and FY 2020 budgets.
If you have any thoughts/projects/initiatives to be considered by Columbia Association through my advocacy, please contact me directly.
