In trying times we need citizens help to envision ways for county government to function more efficiently. Published December 28, 2008
Wish Gainesville were greener? It’s not too late to share your vision of Gainesville’s and Alachua County’s future with our county leaders. County manager Randall Reid asks residents to let him know how you’d like to see Gainesville grow. Send him your comments at: AlternativeFutures@alachuacounty.us and your ideas will be taken into consideration by the County Commission in February.
An update on this project was published in the Sun on Jan. 15. Reid says that meetings to discuss ideas will probably begin in March. He’s especially interested in citizen’s good ideas for cost cutting or revenue generating to help our local government cope in the diminishing economy.
