La Salle County Board passes budget, schedules tax hearing

Posted by wlpo on November 21, 2009

A county budget that has a $10 million deficit will go into place December 1.  The La Salle County Board approved the budget Friday afternoon with little discussion.

The county expects to bring in about $69 million and while paying out about $78 million.   Jerry Hicks is the county board chairman.  He expects the county’s share of retail sales tax and a public safety sales tax to be down a million dollars from the year before.

To help cover the budget deficit, the board is dipping into its cash reserve for about six million dollars.

A truth in taxation hearing is schedule for November 30.
