Commissioners looking to chop budget

The Grays Harbor County Commissioners brought the budget to the chopping block yesterday.

Commissioners Wes Cormier and Vickie Raines each brought proposals of cuts to the special budget meeting yesterday in the commissioners meeting room, and department heads and representatives filled the room and spoke on what they could manage to cut.

With the proposed estimated cuts, an estimated savings of $323,793 by offering an early retirement deal, and an estimated savings of $180,942 by department consolidation the commissioners are looking to save $1,366,548.

Commissioner Raines says the budget will continue to be influx as costs come in.

The commissioners will set a public hearing date at their meeting on Monday for the budget and the hearing will be at least two weeks after Monday.
