SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - Smith County is seeking public input and priorities from citizens on all county related services and issues. Commissioners are hosting a series of community meetings to encourage public input, information and ideas concerning county services and a short questionnaire is now available on the Smith County Website. One of those Community outreach meetings will take place tonight in conjunction with the Bullard City Council Meeting at 6:30 p.m. at Bullard City Hall.

 Smith County officials plan to use the information gathered during the Public Input Project for the upcoming budget year and in long-term comprehensive planning.

"We want to create an open platform for the citizens of Smith County to make their priorities known." Smith County Judge Joel Baker said. "And in turn, use the information we receive to prioritize projects and create specific long term goals and measurements for county services."

All citizens within Smith County are encouraged to fill out a short "Public Input Form" online at www.smith-county.com or at any of the community meetings scheduled in March and April. Citizens can also give input by calling their designated Precinct Commissioner directly at 903-590-4605.

"We know there are a lot of citizens who may have county related concerns, issues and ideas, but their schedule may not allow them to attend regular meetings of the Commissioners Court." Commissioner JoAnn Hampton said. "We want to hear from everyone who has information or ideas and use that information to guide our decisions as we plan for the future of Smith County."

The surveys, which can be filled out anonymously online, will be available to fill out electronically through April 9. Hard copies of the survey will be available at community input meetings beginning to be held in the upcoming weeks. Citizens can also pick up a "Community Input Form" at the County Courthouse Annex or contact their County Commissioner to receive a form via email.

On Tuesday, April 9, the Community Input Project will conclude with a joint meeting for ALL precincts to attend and provide input. A complete schedule of 2013 Smith County Community Input Project meetings is available below:
