Wasco County Budget Approved For 2016-17

The Wasco County Commission approved the County’s budget for the 2016-17 fiscal year.  Commissioner Scott Hege noted the overall total budget number went up to just over 50 million dollars, but that’s related in large part to Mid-Columbia Center For Living building its new facility with a Community Development Block Grant which requires a governmental agency like the County to take on the project.  Hege says the actual County budget saw normal operational increases totaling about one-point-five million dollars.  He did say the Commissioners approved an increase in funding to the North Central Public Health District by about ten percent after a reduction last year.
