General Fund In The Black
January 31, 2014 | 08:37 AM

NEWS PAPER HEADLINES CAN BE MISLEADING----The thing that I don't want to do is mislead the public into thinking that the we on the Council, have balance the County General Fund with general tax receipts.
The Council has done some good housekeeping work the last few years. However, the expenditures from the General Fund in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 have exceeded the tax revenues. This will be true again in 2014,

I would like to point out that funds taken from the Foundation for long term capital improvements are quite a bit different than paying for every day expenses.

I was not criticizing the present Council, of which I am a part. I only think that the public should not be misled by misleading headlines.
