County wraps up budget hearings today
County commissioners are holding their third public hearing on the tentative budget starting at 1 p.m. today. On the agenda today are budgets for the capital improvements program for the county and airport, the town budgets, redevelopment agency, transportation districts and the East Fork Fire & Paramedic District. The meeting times out at three hours and 10 minutes. From our experience with the previous two budget hearings, I’d be surprised if it went that long.
