Community Relations Specialist, Michael Shea and then gave a presentation on
the 2012 Budget and County Services. General Fund has a $17M dollar gap but
they were able to balance the budget. Municipal Services side is in good

about $70. It will take the sales tax revenue about 8 years to get back to
2007 levels, but they are going up. There is a committee working on future
