budget cuts

 

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Klamath County will have a finalized budget by the end of the month.

The budget proposal includes cuts of $266,000 to the District Attorney’s office, $219,000 at the juvenile department, more than $150,000 at the sheriff’s office, plus cuts at the juvenile department and community development. The budget committee meets in two weeks.
