Parks must be closed and workers laid off in order to balance the budget

Comments circulating around country government center.
·         Dooley said the cuts would save $10 million and balance the budget.

·         "Money exists on the revenue side and on the expense side, as well.

·         The county collected $10.4 million more in revenue last year than it had expected.

·         Sales tax revenue this year would be 17.9 percent higher than anticipated.

·         I would encourage you to be cautiously optimistic.

·         The county's charter required conservative estimates in establishing the budget.

·         The administration is "committed to working with (the council) so we don't have to accept this budget."

·         We are committed to working with you.

    Hopefully, St. Louis Counties "Super Committee" led by Councilman Omara to Save Our Parks, will have much better luck and outcome than the Federal Government Super Committee to start cutting debt.

    Anyone feeling the over confidence?
