County Budget Shortfall Less Than Predicted

The most recent estimates out of the CEO’s office say that the county is facing a $72 million shortfall for the next fiscal year. That’s lower than some earlier estimates of $90 million, but still higher than what the county had to deal with last year. The county’s pension fund contribution was thought to be $30 million, but the most recent economic forecast puts it at less than $21 million. Budget hearings take place in mid-June.
