Posted on 21 Jun 2010 by Justin Ruckman
We’ll be interviewing Jennifer Roberts, Chair of the Board of County Commissioners, today at 5:30pm, about the county budget.
You can follow our live-tweets of the interview with the hashtag #meckbudget.
Last Tuesday, the board approved a budget of $1.35 billion for 2011. Their $71 million in cuts, is actually $9 million less than County Manager Harry Jones put forth in his recommendation.
“This budget is the most difficult one I have faced in my 3 terms as a County Commissioner. (…)
It is a budget that has been very painful to discuss, when we feel that most of our choices are not really choices but rather attempts to do the least harm.”
