More specifics on the county government budget cuts

A county official reported today:

  • Around April 1st, all the county offices were asked to cut 10% from their existing budgets
  • About two weeks ago, the same county offices were asked to cut an additional 10%
  • Each department head has the discretion as to how to implement the budget cuts - and that is the reason why some department are having layoffs, while others are not
  • The commissioners have implemented their cuts by going to a 35 hour work week, with flex time
  • Most county offices have reportedly cut 17.5% to 20%
