Posted in Local Government & Meetings

It’s budget making time at counties, cities and agencies. Chelan County is getting near the point of having a preliminary budget. The county’s Public Information Officer Jill Fitzsimmons says commissioners have been hearing from elected officials as to their budget needs and wants over the past few weeks, and this week they’ll be going over the requests:

Fitzsimmons says the county’s general expense budget is projected to be more than 50 million dollars, up from 47 point three million this year. Right now, there’s a 5-point8 million dollar hole in the projected budget, and the county anticipates using some of the 16 million dollars in its rainy day fund to help close it.
