Burnett Budget Response 1/10/2011
In his first week in office Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett has already found himself in a budget hole. . Burnett learned on Monday that the previous administration left him with a 291-thousand dollar budget shortfall. The shortfall was first reported Wednesday by Commissioner Keith Goehner who said the County is now forced to tap into its reserves to balance the budget. Burnett tells KOZI News that he’s been crunching the numbers with the County’s financial staff to determine just what happened.

While Burnett says he’s not in a position to lay blame for the budget discrepancy, he also admits that he was not fully apprised of the situation during the transition. We’ll hear from former sheriff Mike Harum on Monday, which will coincide with the next Chelan County Commissioners meeting.
