County Budget Approved by Ways and Means Committee
The Washtenaw County Sheriff says if the proposed four year county budget is approved he will likely be unable to maintain current service levels if he hits budget targets.
The County Commissioners Ways and Means Committee voted 7 to 2 for the budget last night that ranges from $103 million in 2014 to $106.5 million in 2017.
Sheriff Jerry Clayton says he hopes his warning on possible service reductions starts a community conversation because he won't be running up overtime. Clayton says he proposed a gradual reduction in the sheriff department returning a half-million dollars to the county annually.
The county commissioners will have a public hearing on the budget proposal in two weeks.
