Manitowoc County Executive's 2011 Budget Proposal
Link to October 13 Herald Times Reporter article, "$27.7M budget presented to County Board".
Excerpt: Manitowoc County Executive Bob Ziegelbauer on Tuesday called his proposed 2011 budget a "good starting point" to holding the line on taxes while avoiding layoffs.
Ziegelbauer made his formal budget presentation to the Manitowoc County Board. The $27.7 million budget includes 30 layoffs and closing of the county's Juvenile Detention Center if a 2 percent cut in work-force expenses isn't achieved through bargaining sessions with unions. The county proposed five options to unions to achieve reductions in employee costs, such as wages and fringe benefits.
