Lake County Connects with Residents through Telephone Town Hall Meetings
In December 2016, Lake County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor hosted Lake County’s first-ever Telephone Town Hall meeting. More than 2,800 residents participated in the call and learned about important issues that Lake County government has a role in—from property taxes, to jobs to traffic congestion. Some residents even shared their questions and comments live on the air. In February 2017, Chairman Lawlor hosted a second Telephone Town Hall meeting, and more than 5,500 residents participated.
Residents often ask – what does the County do? The Lake County Board invests in 300 miles of county roads that you drive on every day, funds public safety and judicial agencies that work 24/7 to keep your family safe, and supports healthcare programs that contribute to the health and wellness of our residents and communities. All of these and many other vital services are funded with about 7% of your property tax bill, and YOU have a say in how we prioritize and invest your tax dollars. (Learn more). As the county board gets ready to update its strategic plan next year, we want to know what is important to you. The input from the meeting will be shared with the board.
