County budget discussion Monday night in Varna

Last year's edition of this was already a painful exercise in figuring out what the county is actually allowed by the state to cut, and it sounds like this year will be even darker. I'm sure the "slash government" crowd will be there to enjoy the shrinking, but a lot of the rest of us will be wondering how long the "optional" bits like sheriff's patrol, libraries, and youth services can survive.

Hello, neighbors - Please try to join us for this session, to hear about the county's budget and share your thoughts, early on in our process of creating the 2012 budget. We'll be talking about the choices that will affect you, your family, your neighbors, and our whole community. And please pass this message along to others! Thank you! - Martha
