County lagging behind in budget process

ARENAC COUNTY — County budgets for the year 2009 must be submitted to the state by Dec. 31. However, the budget process is still in its early stages in Arenac County. “I would say they’re (Board of Commissioners) about two or three weeks behind,” said Arenac County Treasurer Dennis Stawowy. “I’d say it’s time to knuckle down.” Board Chairman Raymond Daniels says some movement has been made on getting closer to approving next year’s budget, but said several department heads, who submit their department’s budget requests to the board, were late or waited to the last minute in submitting the requests. “I thought the cut-off date (for requests) was the tenth of October or so, so I don’t know why some people wouldn’t have their’s in,” Daniels said. “I don’t really know what the delay is. Hopefully we get going here pretty quickly.”
