How much do you think the Lake County Commissioners’ office will spend to meet the County’s obligations? You might be surprised…..
The grand total is $247,647,070.08…(yes, no worries the $.08 is accounted for…)
Some interesting statistics:
Insurance on persons $ 250,000
Prescriptions $ 3,800,000
Dental $ 990,000
Total $22,241,710 9.0% of their total budget
We do not know the number of employees that account for the $22,241,710, but it is a question that will be asked of Mr. Michael T. Matas, Finance and Budget Director.
There are many questions we have on this budget, so we will request a meeting with Mr. Matas in January, 2018.
It would be interesting to know what the operating budget was 10 years ago. Even with a declining population, I would wager that we are spending more today. It begs the question – Why?
Stay tuned, there will be much more reporting on this subject.
