The Grays Harbor County Commissioners will hold a special meeting today to “give directions to county department officials on budget reductions”.
“Hopefully we’ll come up with some good solutions to the counties revenue issues and hole we have in our budget”, said Commission Chair Terry Willis during Monday’s board meeting, during which the commissioners were urged to act sooner rather than later by Auditor Vern Spatz.
“Keep on it and help us resolve it as quickly as possible”, Spatz said. “It’s easier for us to manage if we can take whatever cuts we have to do and put them in a longer span of time rather than a shorter span”.
The commissioners appear to have taken that advice to heart. Today’s meeting to discuss the $734-thousand shortfall will begin at 4:00 this afternoon.
