The council members worked in budget sessions in July to cut over $2 million in the budget for next year. The county is asking for a 2.7 percent increase over last year.
There were no public comments and the council approved the non-binding recommendations.
The budget will be adopted at the next meeting on Monday, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. ET. A salary ordinance will also be adopted for next year in the next meeting.
