County council conducting public hearing for 2012 budget

A public hearing for the 2012 Cache County budget will be held on Tuesday, November 22 with the hearing itself starting at 6 p.m. The regular meeting of the Cache County Council begins at 5 p.m. in the Historic Cache County Court House.Cache County Executive Lynn Lemon says he hopes a lot of people will come out for the budget hearing because he really appreciates input from the public.”We always go through this process, and all of those who have gone through a budgeting process know it is not an easy process,” Lemon says. “It’s not easy to go through it. But I do think we’re trying to deal with the issues that are before us. “And at least this point in time there is a budget that has been presented to the county council. It is in balance. It doesn’t include a tax increase.”Lemon says he is still working on the budget. Last week he had $250,000 reserved for employee pay raises but he says he’s hoping to come up with more.
