Duchesne County Commission Focus on Flat Budget

Budgeting is a top priority in the fall for many governing agencies. The Duchesne County Commission reports that while numbers have been tight, the preliminary numbers show a balanced proposed budget for next year. “We are staying flat,” shares Commissioner Ron Winterton. “We didn’t ask for any more revenue than we had last year.” The preliminary budget is now in the state auditor’s hands with the final budget required by November 15th after which it will be published and out for public comment. “We are not doing any building and no new projects for next year,” shares Winterton. “We are staying flat and will just do with what we have coming in to live within our means and not do anything extra.” Duchesne County employees will receive no raises this year because of economic downturn.
