There are a number of things that the county could do for better financial stability. We could save quite a bit of money by eliminating all take home vehicles. This would save on fuel, vehicle repair, tires, oil changes, and make it where vehciles could be replaced less often. Also, the county contributes 95% of all employee dependents on county insurance. This is unheard of in the private sector. Lowering that amount to 75% saves several hundred thousand. A freeze on hiring and spending would reduce the shortfall. We need to live within our means. Let's not dip into our savings until we need to.
