Keeping the Budget

Linn County must learn to spend according to what is in budget. If departments were created not in budget, these should be carefully reviewed and brought into line with the budget. Departments which fail to do their work should be considered for reduction.

Hypothetically, if Linn County was purchasing farms for projects not in budget, such properties should be sold and the funds placed back into the general fund. Similarly, departments should be reviewed for viability, and if services are already available through another agency, then duplicate County services should be terminated or dramatically reduced.

Departments not doing their work should considered for reduction or revision. If Attorneys are unwilling to prosecute crime, then such department should be reviewed. If Engineers are refusing to repair roads and bridges, the same approach makes sense.

It’s time for Leadership.
