Augusta County budget is squeezed

The financially challenging times continue for local governments and Augusta County is no exception. One of the more glaring aspects of that is the fact there are no raises for county employees for the third year in a row.

Monday's budget session ran from 8 am until 2 pm with an hour break for lunch as supervisors and county staff worked to iron out wrinkles before presenting the budget at the public hearing on April 20th.

Bob Stuart with the Waynesboro News Virginian has a good recap of what happened in the meeting and where the money is going.

Residents of Augusta County should be interested in the April 20th public hearing which offers the opportunity to speak directly to supervisors about budgetary concerns over the next year. The meeting will be at 7:00 pm in the supervisor meeting room at the Government Center in Verona.
