The second session of a traveling town-hall meeting series on county funding is tonight in Eagle Point.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Ashpole Community Meeting Room at City Hall in Eagle Point.

The first meeting in the series this month in Ashland attracted nearly 200 citizens.

The meetings were organized by the League of Women Voters and the American Association of University Women after six months of meetings by a county-appointed task force on the county budget crisis.

The groups hope to gather the public's opinion on how the county should proceed with funding issues. The task force issued a variety of recommendations for funding, most of them various types of taxes.
