County Auditor Urges Commissioners to Address Budget Issue

MONTESANO, Wash. – County Auditor Vern Spots urged the Commissioners to get their budget in order at yesterday’s meeting “I noticed that there’s nothing on the agenda today or scheduled for the commissioners the rest of this week and I’m very concerned about loosing more time in dealing with this $734,000 budget problem we’ve got.”
Commissioner Terry Willis said the county is working to setup meetings to talk with departments about a possible %3 cut “hopefully we’ll come up with some good solutions to the county’s revenue issues.”
After a brown bag meeting last week, the county learned they are 3/4 of a million dollars in the red for the year.
