Lake County Hosts First Telephone Town Hall Meeting December 13
Residents often ask – what does the County do? The Lake County Board invests in 300 miles of county roads that you drive on every day, funds public safety and judicial agencies that work 24/7 to keep your family safe, and supports healthcare programs that contribute to the health and wellness of our residents and communities.  All of these and many other vital services are funded with about 7% of your property tax bill and the County Board is working hard to stretch every penny. And, YOU have a say in how we prioritize and invest your tax dollars.

You’re invited to participate in our first-ever Telephone Town Hall meeting December 13 at 7 p.m. with Lake County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor.  As the county board gets ready to update its strategic plan next year, we want to know what is important to you.  During the Telephone Town Hall, we will discuss our current priorities and you will be able to share your thoughts and ideas to make our county even better!
