Work done to deal with county deficit

-A A +A

Our Opinion

By Rich Bauer, Managing Editor

As expected, the Fayette County Board last week approved a deficit budget for the fiscal year that began in December. We knew that was coming, based on comments from members of the board's finance committee in recent months.
Declining revenues and increasing expenses are to blame, and the state's failure to make scheduled payments on tax revenues and reimbursements don't help the cause.
Board Chairman Jeff Beckman and other board members said that they will be working with department heads on ways to cut expenses this fiscal year.
