Laclede County Commissioners ironing out final details on 2021 Budget

The Laclede County Commission is finalizing the 2021 Budget after more than 10 days of meetings with Office Holders and Department Heads. According to Presiding Commissioner Randy Angst the budget will include a slight raise for County Employees, and the county will be absorbing the cost for insurance..



Angst said it appears that the budget for Public Safety will look much like it did last year. He said that they are budgeting very conservatively because they aren’t sure what the lingering effects of Covid 19 might have on the economy. The County Clerk and Finance Officer Linda Cansler will be plugging in the numbers for the final approval of the Commission, and the document will be online on Friday, January 15th for public review and a 10 day comment period.
