Mahoning County auditor asks for modest budget increase in 2012



Published: Tue, November 15, 2011 @ 5:50 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The Mahoning County Auditor’s office has submitted to the commissioners an austere budget, not a wish list, for its office operations next year, according to the chief deputy auditor.

“We know the numbers. This is a fair budget,” said Carol McFall, chief deputy auditor. “We don’t put ‘wish’ things in here. This is what it is, and there’s no wishing in here,” she said.

“We’ve presented the tightest budget that we can present,” McFall told the commissioners in a budget hearing today.

The auditor’s central office budget calls for $909,783 to come from the general fund in 2012, compared to $885,066 this year.

The proposed increase is due in part to increased costs for employee health-care coverage, McFall said.

County Auditor Michael V. Sciortino said he has also built in a 3 percent pay increase for his unionized employees should all or part of that raise be granted, but he said his current position in ongoing labor negotiations calls for no pay increases in 2012.

falcon, "Do Unto Others What You Would Have Them Do Unto You."

I'll bet I can find something you do that someone else would consider "high risk." You need to lose this idea you have that you get to decide how someone else lives their life.

Most companies have employees pay a minimum of 15% and many are closer to 30%. Most companies also have smokers pay a much larger piece of their health care because they use far more health care. The public sector is out of control and needs to face the same reality the private sector faces.
