Doing More With Less

June 12th, 2008 by flanews

A day after the governor signed a budget billions of dollars lighter than last years Florida TaxWatch released recommendations to help local governments deal with budget cuts. The recommendations highlight 150 best practices of Florida counties, cities and schools. The plan is for local governments to save money in order to keep from cutting vital services. TaxWatch President Dominic Calabro said pay and benefits for municipal employees shouldnt suffer.

I think youve got to have good compensation for our local employees, whether theyre administrators, parks and recreation, school teachers, police or fire, but its got to be reasonable not excessive, said Calabro.

The new budget will go into effect on July First.
