That's what county budget manager Frank Pinter told the Mason County Commission during a briefing May 13. Pinter presented the commission and county department heads with a variety of options, including cutting costs, creat- ing a metropolitan park district and rais- ing taxes. "This is the most comprehensive bud- get analysis I've seen," Public Works Di- rector Brian Matthews said. Commissioner Tim Sheldon spoke out against raising taxes. "Our general property taxes collected were just over $18 million (in 2012). Our treasurer is collecting 6 percent more on penalties and interest," Sheldon said. "I think what that shows us is the property taxpayer is pretty much at their limit." Commissioner Randy Neatherlin said voters should be "allowed to decide their own future" and vote on potential tax increases. Commissioner Terri Jeffreys said the county should continue promoting retail de- velopment to increase county tax revenue. While the commission must consider raising revenue to balance its budget, John Keates, director of facilities, parks and trails, said May 12 that county fa- cilities will need $7 million in improve- ments before 2018. Those projects include adding space at the Mason County Courthouse, add- ing storage throughout the county cam- pus, finding a use for the county's church rectory building and establishing a facili- ties renovation and development fund. to generate the tax base needed to pay for growth in county government, Pinter said during his presentation.
