The plan also includes two proposals for water trails for kayakers and other non-motorized beats. One starts at the Pine Street Road launch on Oakland Bay; the other at the head of Eagle Point Trail on Oakland Bay. The plan points out the proposals depend on money and opportunity. Possible funding sources include the Shelton Metropolitan Park District budget, park im- pact fees, federal and state grants, and donations of materials, labor and money.

The budget is balanced with $1,560,835 from the county's reserve oc ending fund balance. Adding in $58 million in special funds managed by the county, such as the road fund, rural county sales and use tax fund and the real estate excise tax 1 and 2 funds, the total budget for 2014 amounts to $91.9 million. Commissioner Tim Sheldon voted against the budget. "I'm tight as bark on a tree -- I think we spend too much money," he said. Sheldon said the current expense budget increased 10 percent from 2013 and said he was concerned that the county was relying on one-time rev- enue. "I don't know if that kind of in- creased spending is sustainable," he said. "I'm worried we're on an unsus- tainable financial trajectory." Commission Chair Randy Neather- lin said the county would likely need a levy shift in the near future. In 2014, Jeffreys said the county will make improvements to the Mason County Jail, add three new deputies to the Mason County Sheriffs office, focus on land use and economic plan- ning and will work on long-range plan- ning. "I look forward to having a five-year plan by the end of 2014," she said. LUBRICANTS COMPANY We deliver . HEA'IrING Oll.t I COMPARE OUR tow PmCES: (hi ! i; I i I
