Deschutes County Commissioners Could Approve Budget Today


No layoffs - but no new jobs either- those are some of the highlights of a Deschutes County budget that Commissioners may approve today. County Administrator Dave Kanner says the budget is pretty much flat and the County continues to hold on and hope for a better economy. "We are very, very fortunate to have some well-funded reserves and because we have these reserves we can draw them down to offset some cost increases. It’s obviously not a long-term fiscal strategy but it should be able to carry us through these tough economic times until we get back to more normal revenue streams.” The total budget is $267 million, down from $271 million in the current fiscal year. It needs to be approved by the end of this month because the new fiscal year starts July 1st.
