Cache County Council members spent two hours together Tuesday afternoon prior to the regular council meeting. Council president Greg Merrill says it was one of several meetings being held this year to have updates on the budget.
“Last year as we got our budget from our County Executive Craig Buttars,” says Merrill, “there were a lot of items that we needed to come up to speed on.
“But this way we’re able to, throughout the year, look at what the revenue was coming in, what the expenses are, what our budget is. We were pleasantly surprised that our revenue and expenses were right in line with what was budgeted for 2016.”
Merrill says county residents will be happy to learn there will be no tax increases this year.
