NEWSLETTER CORRECTION - APRIL 2

CORRECTION OF FINANCE COMMITTEE MEETING DATE

MONDAY, APRIL 20, The FINANCE COMMITTEE WILL BE AIRED AT 2:00 pm ....very IMPORTANT MEETING (previously stated Tuesday)   Although I verified the date before publishing in Newsletter, I was given wrong info.  With all the turmoil happening around and the endless meetings being held, I know all are over-whelmed with data and dates.    I apologize for the misinformation.

Also, Elections Department has not updated their website from which I cut and pasted info about Advanced Voting Dates.  As of today, it is still not updated.  So please refer to their page later for updates of times and dates of Advance Voting.  www.celebratedouglascounty.com/depts/48/elections_and_voter_registration.htm
