FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
St. Louis County Will Hold Evening Meeting in Mountain Iron, MN
The St. Louis County Board of Commissioners will hold a public meeting at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21, 2011 at the Mountain Iron Community Center, Mountain Iron, MN. The evening meeting will present an opportunity for the public to address the County Board at a time when many citizens are not working.
Commissioners will meet at the Mountain Iron Community Center, 8586 Enterprise Drive, in a workshop setting rather than as a formal meeting of the County Board. Board Workshops are designed to provide Commissioners the opportunity to engage in extended discussion on a limited number of specific topics that may require more time and staff input than can be allowed at a formal County Board meeting.
Because it is scheduled for the evening, the County Board will also provide opportunity at the beginning of the meeting for public comment. Comments that are unrelated to specific agenda items will be limited to five (5) minutes per speaker. Agenda items will include an update from the County Administrator regarding 2012 budget planning and an executive summary of the recent Citizens' Survey of County Government that was conducted in April of this year.
The meeting is expected to adjourn at approximately 9:30 p.m.
