Deschutes County Commissioners approved next year's budget that is almost flat compared to last year. Deschutes County Administrator Dave Kanner says the budget includes no layoffs, but no staff additions either. He also says the budget also reflects the tough economic times we're going thru and doesn't have tax or fee increases. "I do want to mention that we aren't increasing any taxes. We are not increasing our building and planning fees. Our transportation systems development charge will actually be down slight next year so I think the board has been very sensitive to the economic conditions in the local community when considering what to include and what not to include in this budget." The total budget is $267 million down from #271 million in the current fiscal year.
