TUESDAY, JANUARY 9 — ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT – SUSTAINABLE GOVERNMENT 

Herrick District Library, 300 S. River Avenue, Holland

This program will explore various sources of local government funds and review the city and county budget process. While we have taken advantage of special funds, government grants and our own local philanthropic generosity, the long-term responsibility for funding remains within the community. What are the near-term and long-term needs within the community, and how should they be supported? The program will conclude with a question and answer opportunity.
