Budgets Are Slashed

March 03, 1991

County agencies and departments are awaiting the county budget office's recommendations on their revised budgets for the rest of this fiscal year and for 1992.

Following a directive to resubmit fiscal 1991 budgets with 1 percent cuts and fiscal 1992 budgets -- which take effect July 1 -- with 2 percent cuts, many agencies plan to reduce their personnel, travel, supplies and money.

The emergency budget measures come as the county faces a $5.3 million shortfall in the current $115 million budget. It could end up short for next year's proposed $112 million budget.

County Management and Budget Director Steven D. Powell said last week that results ofthe budget adjustments would be released sometime in the coming week.
