Tomorrow the chickens will come home to roost. Many people are predicting a huge shock. Tomorrow, County Executive Craig Gerhart will present the FY10 Proposed Fiscal Plan.
Don’t go looking for any preliminary information. It isn’t there.
This Item Will Be Made Available At The Meeting
Are we going with the 10%, 20% or 30% plan? Will we have any services? Will we have a police department, considering local and state cuts in this area? (Police Officers Converge on the State Capitol Thursday)
Will we have parks, libraries? How many employees will still have jobs? How about our firefighters and emergency responders? Many are volunteer but not all. Will promises made to them be kept?
There will be 2 public hearings tomorrow. Additionally, there will be 2 Citizens’ Times. It sounds like a full day, beginning at 2 p.m.
Prediction: Many people will go to bed with good old fashioned sticker shock.
