This fall, Oregon’s Kitchen Table will be inviting folks in Curry County to take a seat and join in a discussion about their county’s financial picture. Our second consultation is all about you, Curry County!
The Curry County Board of Commissioners (BOC), under Chair Dave Itzen, have asked the Table to assist them in continuing their efforts to hear from Curry County residents on how to address the County’s revenue shortfall.
Oregon Community Foundation and the Ford Family Foundation are funding the consultation, which will include facilitated, small group discussions held concurrently with the online survey. This time, we’re actually going to set some tables so you can sit down face-to-face with your fellow Curry County citizens and talk about these important issues.
The consultation will build upon the work the county’s Citizen’s Committee convened by the BOC and facilitated by one of our sister programs here at PSU’s Hatfield School of Government, Oregon Consensus.
We’ll keep you posted as the Board and the Table develop the consultation! In the meantime, take a look at the results of our first, statewide consultation.
