St. Croix closes in on balanced 2009 budget
Department budget requests must be cut. County sales tax income is falling short of projections. Property tax money spent on the county nursing home is money that can't be used for other needs.
Those are three of the messages St. Croix County Finance Committee members will bring to the full County Board when they offer a budget proposal Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Although they're not there yet, Finance Committee members spent about six hours last Thursday hammering out a 2009 budget.
