Larry DeBoer, a professor of agricultural economics at Purdue, will present “Life after Recession: Local Government Finance Update” via video streaming.

DeBoer will discuss the state budget, look at the results of the property tax billing for 2010, report on the results of the tax referenda and offer thoughts about what an informed constitutional referendum voter might consider during the November elections.

“The idea is for me to get on the Web and talk about issues that are facing state and local governments in Indiana,” DeBoer said. “It comes out of the work I do with property taxes, state budget, local income taxes and whatever else happens to come along.”

The presentation can be viewed at the following county Extension offices: Allen, Bartholomew, Clark, Dearborn, Decatur, Floyd, Fountain, Hendricks, Johnson, Kosciusko, LaPorte, Tippecanoe and White. A viewing also is available at the Greene County Community Learning Center.
