Des Moines County’s proposed budget for next year requires another round of cuts.
Chairman Tom Broeker says the Board of Supervisors requested departmental budgets that covered needs but did not include frivolous spending.
He says that is what the panel received, but cuts were still needed.
The Board of Supervisors trimmed the initial departmental requests by more than $500,000.
That includes about $400,000 in the maintenance department and about $110,000 in conservation.
