WEEK AHEAD: County committees to examine Brooks's budget proposal

Posted By on Mon, Nov 25, 2013 at 9:10 AM

Legislators will discuss County Executive Maggie Brooks 2014 budget proposal during committee meetings on Monday and Tuesday.

On both days, the meetings start at 4:30 p.m. and will be held in the Legislature chambers at the County Office Building, 39 West Main Street. Four committees meet each day.

The Human Services Committee meeting, which starts at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, will likely see the most intense questioning. Democrats will try to draw out the details of how the budget proposal would affect social services. Children’s advocates are alarmed over a proposed decrease in the local share of child day care subsidies.

Brooks has proposed an approximately $1.2 billion budget for 2014. Under the plan, the property tax rate would be $8.99 per $1,000 assessed value.
