One Response to Proposed 2014-2015 budget released

  1. Just to make sure we all understand, the proposed budget is not a “crap shoot.” Maybe that’s what was done at the county level in past years, but not here. This budget is based on extensive research, planning and educated projections, and we can back it all up.

    The one thing I am very sure of, the propensity for county supervisors to tap the fund balance is poor practice. It’s part of the reason we got rid of that form of government.

    I’ve submitted a healthy yet conservative budget that comes under the tax caps and still gives departments resources they need to provide our taxpayers services across the board.
