Precinct 4 Commissioner Dusty Renfro, new this year, said it “would be nice to involve the court in the process early on.”
“It’s really different from the private sector, where you have monthly and quarterly meetings and are always abreast of it,” he said. “It couldn’t hurt to have quarterly budget meetings.”
”This is the first time I’ve ever had to vote on it, and I want to understand it,” he said.
Roth, who has served on the court for multiple terms, said he understands the process fully, but wants the judge to explain it to the court in enough time for commissioners to make informed decisions.
“I think the general public would agree — [and say] why haven’t you talked about this in May or June,” he said.
“It’s building up anxiety in the workforce and causing taxpayers to question whether we know what we’re doing.”
