GT Co. Looking To Make Budget Cuts

Posted: Updated:

Grand Traverse County's budget for 2014 is just over $1 million too much.

Now, they are looking to make some cuts.

The county administrator says while nothing is a done deal, there are a number of areas that would be taking a hit.

The cuts would have the largest impact on the sheriff's department.

 Eight jobs, including five road patrol deputy positions, could potentially be eliminated.

 The county administrator says they have data to back up their decision to possibly make these cuts.

 By the end of the month, they will deliver a recommended budget to the county commissioner's board, and then final decisions will be made from there.
