As Carroll County develops its FY 2013 budget, it is struggling with many unknowns created by State budget uncertainties. These uncertainties are highlighted by the Carroll County Times.
How much funding will Carroll County receive from the state? Will increased teacher pension costs affect staffing? Can the county spend more money on libraries, non-profit organizations and other citizen services? Can county roads be repaved?
These are just a few of the questions that the Carroll County Board of Commissioners and staff will have to answer as it develops the Fiscal Year 2013 operating budget. Ted Zaleski, director of the county’s department of management and budget, gave the board an overview of the proposed recommended budget developed by he and other county staff.
