Citizen Involvement in the Budget Process
Pitt County welcomes citizen input in the budget process and all aspects of County government. The county employs various mechanisms to gather input to the budget process. Online or published surveys may be utilized. The Commissioners budget workshops held in May are open to the public to attend, and a public hearing for comments on the upcoming budget is held in early June. A public address time is held at the beginning of all regular meetings of the Board of Commissioners for any topic of concern to a citizen. Input through mail, email or phone is always welcome.
