The Deschutes County Administrator, Dave Kanner, has his budget message for next year, and its different than what we've heard from local school districts and cities lately. The budget message; no more staff cuts and no new fees, is the first in a series of meetings before the budget is adopted in late June.  "The County has made a number of cuts in past years to help us balance. It’s not necessary to make any further cuts next year. We're not planning on any increases in building and planning or any other fees for that matter. We're going to live with what we have.  We do project that our property tax revenues are going to be down a little bit in the next year; that's not unusual in the current market. We're actually down not quite as much as the cities of Bend or Redmond, so in that respect, we're doing fairly well." County Administrator Dave Kanner says the Board of Commissioners is also dedicated to economic development so they are trying to help the community recover from the recession as quickly as possible, by not raising fees.
