The Deschutes County Budget Committee started meeting Thursday. “Mr. Kanner will explain to us the challenges that we are having this year compared to last year. Basically, the heads up is that property values have gone down, that means the revenue to the County will be less and we will need to budget accordingly.”
Deschutes County Commissioner Alan Unger is part of the budget committee. Up to a half dozen budget meetings could be held before budget adoption by July first.
