CUT THE FAT
One job of the Commissioner's Court is to set the county's budget. Now that the press has reported it, I can tell you that Fort Bend has targeted a 10% cut in its budget on non-salaried items. Salaried items will be frozen at last year's budget levels. In our pre-bugdet talks, my office will meet this projections. And I am going to do my best to see that the rest of the county does the same.
