Annual process begun: County budget requests said almost $1 million over


October 18, 2018

The path to decide next year’s county budget took another step Tuesday as county commissioners met for a 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. workshop to figure how to cut a projected $996,000 deficit in preparation to pass a balanced 2019 county budget by Dec. 31.
