Washtenaw County Commissioners Adopt New Budgeting Approach

The Washtenaw County Commissioners have passed a resolution setting the priorities they want used in the development of future budgets.  As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, County Commissioners contend it's part of a new approach to better connect budgeting with desired outcomes. 

Washtenaw County will create five work groups to develop targets and metrics to measure success in budget decisions.

The priorities: Ensure a community safety net, increase economic opportunity, ensure mobility, and reduce environmental impact.
