Lexington County wrestles with red ink

May 2, 2011 6:38:00 PM - thestate.com
Lexington County leaders are looking at small tax hikes, service cuts and savings to offset nearly $1 million in red ink projected for a spending plan for the year starting July 1.

County Council members are divided on the mix of those choices to avert a deficit.

“We’re all over the board right now,” Council Chairman Jim Kinard said Monday.

Projections are that it will cost $98.4 million to operate most county services, $912,000 more than revenue expected. Libraries, trash and indigent care are separate.

And the price tag could rise.
