Hello!

I'm Anton Neff and I am your representative for District Two on
the Owen County Council.  Last night, the Owen County Council
conducted its first meeting of 2013.  Enclosed is
information you may find helpful when you have questions about
Owen County government or need assistance throughout the coming
year.


WHAT IS THE OWEN COUNTY COUNCIL?

It is a seven member board consisting of four members elected
from districts and three elected county wide.  The Council
reviews and sets county operating budgets, sets certain tax
rates, establishes compensation for county employees,
appropriates public funds, and has the ability to
secure financing for county government projects.  The Council
also makes appointments to several local boards and committees.

WHEN DOES THE COUNTY COUNCIL HOLD PUBLIC MEETINGS?

Regular meetings and budget hearings are open to the public and
you are invited!

Regular monthly meetings are held at the Owen County Courthouse
in the 2nd floor meeting room on the second Monday of each month
at 7:00 PM.  The deadline to be a part of the meeting agenda
regarding an issue relating to the County Council is the Monday
prior to the meeting at Noon.  All agenda inquires can be
directed to the Auditor at 829-5000.

Annual budget hearings are also held at the Courthouse and are
usually conducted in late August.

Special meetings, work sessions, and committee meetings can also
occur as needed and may be advertised on a per case basis in the
Spencer Evening World.


WHAT ISSUES MAY I CONTACT MY COUNCIL MEMBER ABOUT?

Any issue relating to finances, budgets, compensation, funds,
taxes, etc., as noted above.

If you have a question that is outside the realm of the County
Council's duties, I can still help point you in the right
direction for assistance.

Communication is a two-way street and I also often contact folks
in the District to ask for their opinions and insight on issues
as well.  You can also specifically contact me regarding County
Plan Commission issues as I serve as the Council's appointment
to that board.


WHAT IS YOUR POLICY ON CONFIDENTIALITY?

I encourage open communication and in order to do so, I simply
ask that people identify themselves.  I do not respond to
unsigned letters, anonymous calls, etc.  If a person
specifically requests that I keep their name confidential when I
work to address an issue, I will honor that.


Please let me know if you have an alternate email address you
would like me to make note of.  Thank you very much for your
time.  I look forward to working with you!
