The board is still $315,000 short of balancing the proposed budget and will wait until after the public hearing on Tuesday, April 21, to decide how to make up the $315,000 shortfall. Supervisors must decide whether to provide the $315,000 from the county fund balance or make further cuts in the proposed budget.
