On TaxesIt's about TRUST & TRANSPARENCY & SHARPENING OUR PENCILS!
Leslie Osche will work hard to continually earn the taxpayer’s trust, keeping taxes low by driving efficiency in County government. We are proud that our General Fund revenue growth is outpacing our budget growth. Working alongside a great management team, we've been able to hold the line on budget growth to 1.5% average. We are managing long-term growth through the adoption of a compensation plan for non-union employees that establishes pay grades and ranges that establishes salary caps, while encouraging employee advancement. Thanks to the working relationship with our unions, we've achieved manageable four year agreements with 2.5% salary increases and the introduction of wage tiers that will save over a half million dollars in four years.
