DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin on Tuesday proposed a nearly $432 millionbudget for 2013 that would cut spending by $8 million.
At Tuesday’s County Board meeting, Cronin credited savings from greater competitive bidding and changes to employee benefits as the sources for reduction in his proposed spending plan. The balanced budget also calls for seven fewer full-time employee positions compared with 2012. ”DuPage taxpayers remain protected from any need to raise taxes or cut essential services,” Cronin said. “Once again, we do not raise taxes on our residents and we do not need to use general fund cash to balance the budget. We are budgeting within our means without asking for more from taxpayers or going into debt like most other units of government.”
