Vanderburgh County Council works on budget

Aug 20, 2014

First the city, now the county. The Vanderburgh County Council is considering a county budget for 2015. 

Most county departments are proposing small budget increases, but members of the county council have made it clear that cuts will be coming.

County Council President Tom Shetler tells the Evansville Courier and Press that where the cuts will be “nobody really knows at this moment.”

County officials are dealing with frozen tax revenues as a result of the property tax caps passed several years ago by the Indiana Legislature.
