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.
