On WCOA Radio This Morning Discussing the Budget....
As we work through our budget process for 2017-2018, challenges have been present around every turn. Our latest challenge is how to cut enough to fully fund all the departments while simultaneously not raising year-over-year property tax rates.
I'll be discussing this on WCOA this morning, along with the pending class-action settlement of the jail explosion and the beach roundabouts.
