Brooks presenting county budget tonight


Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks will present her 2013 budget proposal to the County Legislature tonight.
The presentation is at 6 p.m., which is when the Legislature meeting is scheduled to start.

The county budget typically comes in at approximately $1 billion. And the tax rate will probably stay at $8.99 per $1,000 assessed value; every year Brooks repeats her pledge not to raise the property tax rate.

The question is how will she balance the budget, since the 2012 plan projected a multimillion dollar deficit for 2013.
