Though a hot real estate market created a budget surplus in previous years, softening revenues, rising construction costs and the expense of securing water resources could strain the Carroll County budget next year, county budget director Ted Zaleski said. Zaleski warned that capital projects, even those on the county's six-year plan, might be slashed. He and analysts are preparing to unveil a budget for fiscal year 2008 in March.
