Deschutes County is bracing for cuts; especially departments that rely heavily on property tax revenue. A couple of examples of Deschutes County Departments affected by weak property tax revenue are the County Clerks Office, the District Attorney and Veteran’s Services. The County Administrator, Dave Kanner, says unlike the federal government, state and local governments can’t do deficit spending, so they have to make the numbers work: “When you talk about "the budget" it's important to bear in mind that the county budget it is made up of about 100 different funds. Some are in really good shape; some are in bad shape. So overall I think the picture is grim but manageable." Deschutes County is expecting money from property taxes to be down 3% to 4%.”
