CONA's October meeting is a great opportunity to meet candidates for Sarasota County Charter Review Board and County Commission.
The role of the Charter Review Board is to review and recommend changes to Sarasota County Charter (our local constitution). Our County Charter's provisions include limits on how much our county government can borrow and protections of our Urban Service Boundary (USB).
County Commissioners' responsibilities include approving the county's $1.1 billion budget and making decisions on land use changes such as rezoning and special exceptions.
The upcoming election on November 4th is extremely important for the future of Sarasota County. We urge you to attend our candidate forum and be informed on the positions of the various candidates.
