10-23-13 fdl county budget unveiled

The Fond du lac County Executive has unveiled a proposed 2014 Fond du lac County budget.  County executive Al Buechel rolled out the budget at Tuesday night’s meeting.  We are not able to fund a cost of living increase for employees but we are able to continue all of the services, no layoffs, no cutbacks,'  Buechel told WFDL news.   Buechel says the budget includes a slight increase in the tax rate.  "The levy impact is an increase of $850,000 which should have a result of 1.23 percent on the average tax bill."   The budget does include funding for a specialized assistant district attorney to prosecute sexual assault and domestic violence cases.  Last year the county used unanticipated bail forfeitures to fund the position after a federal grant for the position expired. A public hearing on the budget is scheduled for November 5th with adoption planned for Tuesday November 12th.
