Is Commissioner Frazier confused, or is someone else writing her press releases?
In her press release dated May 27, 2014 (http://ccgovernment.carr.org/ccg/releases/FY15%20Budget_RF.pdf), she suggests Carroll Community College use their fund balance for ongoing expenses, namely raises.
“It is important to note that if cameras and salaries are priorities for the Community College, they have a surplus of $2.5 million that could be used.”
But the same day, she says that’s a bad, bad thing to do, at least at the county level.
From her twitter page:
Better 2 use incoming revenues, not surpluses, 2 fund budget. All needed is to reduce the rate of increase to balance the budget. #O‘Howard
