We're coming to the last quarter of 2023, and for governments, that means its budget making time for 2024. Chelan County has got budget projections and requests from its departments, and will start budget hearings next month. This year's budget for the county is 51-point-1 million dollars, the county tries to have about ten million set aside in reserves. County Commissioner Tiffany Gering said on KOZI Monday that the county is facing headwinds when it comes to putting next year's budget together:
The county has budget hearings set for October 4th through the 6th, that's a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. They're open to the public, either in person or on Zoom. Gering says the county's goal is to have the budget adopted in early December.
