Ocean Pines Association (OPA), which oversees the largest residential community in Worcester County, announced today that it will host several meetings and a public hearing this month to discuss its upcoming budget.
The meetings and public hearings are opportunities for the membership to learn about proposals for Fiscal Year 2018-2019 (FY18-19) and to voice concerns and questions with General Manager John Bailey and the Ocean Pines Board of Directors.
The Association’s budget for FY18-19, which would go into effect May 1, must be adopted by the Board of Directors by the end of February. The Board, with the recommendation from the Budget & Finance Committee and Mr. Bailey, will review the proposed budget and is expected to vote on a final budget at the Regular Board Meeting on Sunday, Feb. 25 at noon in the Community Center, located at 235 Ocean Parkway in Ocean Pines.
The below events have been scheduled to promote membership participation and ensure the membership has the opportunity to become familiar with the budget process.
