The list goes on and on, but a simple fact remains the same: in Cecil County our elected officials lack the will power to hold the line on taxes.
Starting in January 2010, the Cecil County Commissioners will engage in another budget cycle where they will make further decisions about how to spend public money in Cecil County. They will deal with issues related to falling revenues and increased budget demands. They will deal with maintenance of effort mandates handed down from the state that apply not only to education, but other fiscal obligations that county government is expected to cover.
Citizens must engage in budget hearings, propose recommendations, and apply constant pressure on the County Commissioners to get the job done on taxes.
