The county says they are always looking for money. Not surprising when you look at this chart. The information is from OpenTheBooks.com
2001 Wages: 24,678,157
2011 Wages: 33,433,451
2001 spending: 49,690,795
2011 spending: 81,260,567
That’s around a 61% increase in total spending in 10 years.
It looks like the massive increases stopped and started to reverse in 2009. Hopefully it will continue!
