Emmet Co. Commissioners Approve Budget Blueprint That Could Save EMGO

Emmet County commissioners approved a budget blueprint that could save the county transit system known as EMGO.

Just last week we told you the EMGO could be on the chopping block to balance the budget.

But Thursday night the county administrator presented a plan that will allow the county to keep EMGO.

The county will not fill some open positions, sacrifice some capital spending, and some other cost saving measures.

With this approval county staff will continue working on this plan, but commissioners still need to approve a final budget.
