Why can’t the county use money it already has to pay for a new courthouse?

Operating efficiently with county resources is a priority for leadership. During the recent recession the county made numerous reductions and kept the mill levy steady, including navigating $46 million in on-going budget reductions, eliminated 428 full time staff positions (approximately 12% of our workforce), reduced or eliminated merit increases for three years and spent down general fund reserves from 42 to 21%. More on the current budget and our services to residents is available on our website at jocogov.org.
