Lane County Budget – Still Hiring while Sheriff is Cut

It’s time for another look at the Lane County, Oregon “budget crisis”. As County Commissioners continue to whine about lack of funds (and the need to raid your wallet), have a look at their continued hiring binge. Today, another few hundred thousand per year in non-safety hiring, while layoffs in the Sheriff department and other public safety areas continue.

So as they slash public safety and replace those jobs the public wants with these the public doesn’t want, ask yourself, are the County Commissioners of Lane County Oregon listening to what you want, or spending money in areas you don’t want?

Great job guys, cut the sheriff and jail operations to hire more managers.

Here’s what we’ve found since the “budget crisis” began. See for yourself at http://www.co.lane.or.us/jobs/ — the hiring continues, but Lane County Commissioners will have to slash public safety, release criminals, and cease prosecuting some crimes completely.

Are these your priorities over public safety? How much money could be saved by leaving some of these jobs unfilled?
