The county could be tightening its belt a few more loops this year.
Judge-Executive Harry Berry on Tuesday presented the county’s leanest budget proposal since the 2003-04 fiscal year — the $28.1 million budget is roughly $3.1 million, or 9.7 percent, trimmer than the current fiscal year’s budget.
However, Berry said services will not be hampered and reserves will not need to be tapped to balance the books. Berry said the county has about $11.9 million in reserves available.
