BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Once again it’s time to “Speak Up Brevard.”
In an effort to provide a formal process for citizens to submit recommendations to Brevard County government, and as a result of charter amendment, Brevard County is implementing a web-based application called “Speak Up Brevard.”
The online form will be available through Dec. 31 at www.brevardcounty.us. It allows citizens to submit ideas which would assist county government in conserving energy, saving costs, eliminating duplication, generating revenue, increasing productivity, or preventing waste.
A hard-copy version of the form may also be submitted, and is available through the County Manager’s office.
The process requires submissions to meet a deadline of Jan. 1, after which the County Manager’s office has 45 days to evaluate and comment on the recommendation, and then forward it to the Board of County Commissioners for review.
The Board of County Commissioner must take a final vote to either approve, reject, or revise and accept the recommendation within 120 days. The sponsor of the recommendation will be given at least a week’s notice prior to it being heard and voted on by the Board. A listing of all recommendations, including disposition, will be posted on the County website.
Visit www.brevardcounty.us, click on the e-Government tab and then, in the category labeled “Provide Feedback,” recommendations can be posted under the heading “Speak Up Brevard.”
