Business, Politics

At 10:00 this morning Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon presented his 2011 balanced budget to the Snohomish County Council and public.

The $203 milllion dollar general fund budget contains no new taxes. While close to 200 jobs have been eliminated from the budget, only 20 filled positions have been reduced out of the 2700 employees in the County. And 2011 cash reserves will grow at 11%. 

The cooperation of all Snohomish County Elected officials over the past two years allowed this budget to come to fruition for 2011.

While virtually all government entities are making service cuts for 2011, Snohomish County continues to provide quality service to its residents and looks forward to better times.
