In speaking of the FY08 and FY09 Tentative Budget Mr. Reid said, "This year's budget message theme is Sustaining County Services in an Era of Property Tax Reform.  Over the next two fiscal years of FY08 and FY09 our efforts will revolve around the actions we will need to undertake to sustain the County's organizational capacity to provide core services and build new infrastructure in the face of mandated property tax relief legislation and what I consider the erosion of home rule."
