Even though there were pleas to cut the 2010 budget in December 2009, January, and February 2010 by Commissioners Cox and Patrick, Bernard, Hill, and Pennamon were convinced they knew better and the county would have plenty of money and there was no need to 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 do with the 2010 budget.   Watch the video!  http://www.youtube.com/gajasper#p/a/u/1/2SNeqDLZkOM


Maybe Comm. Bernard thinks no one remembers how he was very vocal at the budget hearings in February 2010 that the budget did not need to be cut and he would 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.
