Albemarle’s Budget Shortfall

The county has a $3.3M budget shortfall, Jeremy Borden reported for the Progress yesterday, leaving the county trying to figure out what to cut. What with the soaring property tax rates, I’m not sure many people will be able to muster much sympathy. Staff had counted on a cooling housing market, but it happened faster and cooled more than they’d planned on. The county figures they can make up their $1.4M by not filling positions as they become open, but the school has to figure out how they’ll make up their $1.9M.
