allows citizens to submit ideas in conserving energy, saving costs, eliminating duplication
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County officials have created “Speak Up Brevard,” which allows citizens to submit ideas that would assist the county government in conserving energy, saving costs, eliminating duplication, generating revenue, increasing productivity, or preventing waste.
In an effort to provide a formal process for citizens to submit recommendations to Brevard County government officials, and as a result of the charter amendment, Brevard County is implementing a web-based application called “Speak Up Brevard.”
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 online form will be available through Jan. 1, 2021, at http://sites.brevardcounty.us/SpeakUpBrevard
