All residents are asked to come to a public hearing on May 2nd to voice their opinions on the proposed budget.
Frederick County Commissioners met Thursday to discuss the proposed operating budget for fiscal year 2013.
In the proposed $465.6 million plan, county employees would get raises for the first time in nearly four years and most local homeowners would get a $100 tax refund check.
Commissioner David Gray is unhappy with the proposed budget because he wants more money to go into social service programs and education through the maintenance of effort funds.
"A part of the budget that is being reduced on a systematic basis is our aid to non-profit human services. We're cutting out our assistance to social services and at this point, depending on what happens with the state, we drew the line on education at the maintenance of effort which would in fact would not, as of this time, allow for any help for salaries for teachers," Gray said.
Gray is asking all residents to come to a public hearing on May 2nd to voice their opinions on the proposed budget.
"It says it's a recommended budget but I don't recommend it but none the less I want the public to see it because I think there are three commissioners that are in favor of it," Gray said.
