Mainly those concerns have dealt with funding for public safety (specifically for the sheriff, solicitor and public defender’s offices) and the appropriations and expenditures of excess funds from the 2013-14 budget. The implication was that these funds should be used for adding additional staff to these departments. I will be the first to state that these departments are a very important core function of government.
A funding stream originally set up to pay for county economic development projects may not be enough to help cover costs for a planned Heath Springs spec building, though county officials discussed potential alternatives Monday night, March 23.
