OVERSPENDING OF 2010 BUDGET
pleas to cut the 2010 budget in December 2009, January, and February
Commissioners Cox and Patrick, Bernard, Hill, and Pennamon were
knew better and the county would have plenty of money and there was no
cut the budget. As shown on
the handout given in the meeting there is a projected
$365,661 shortfall according to the financial consultant and the CFO,
both of who
attended the meeting. Commissioner
Bernard reminds the others every chance he gets that he had nothing to
the 2010 budget. Watch

Maybe Comm. Bernard thinks no one remembers how he was very vocal at
hearings in February 2010 that the budget did not need to be cut and he
not make cuts. He voted in March 2010 to
set the 2010 budget at the same as 2009.
Both Comm. Cox and Comm. Patrick voted against the
2010 budget because they
felt it was set too high.
