Pace of the budget process at Laclede County picks up

Since the beginning of 2023, the Laclede County Commission has been hard at work preparing the budget for this year. County Commissioner Randy Angst says the process really picked up last week.

The Commission met again Thursday Morning to discuss further plans for the budget, and hopes to have the numbers settled by Friday. Angst believes this year’s budget reflects the current state of the overall economy.

Once the budget is officially presented to the public online, and at the courthouse, a 10-day period of public comments will begin.
