County Tasked With Cutting $6.6M From Budget 9-20-2010

The Saginaw County Board of Commissioners will meet on Tuesday to attempt to resolve a $6.6 million deficit.
Officials have recommended cutting up to 51 jobs, which could include 15 or more positions at the Saginaw County Sheriff's department.
Deputies will hold an information picket Tuesday just before the board of commissioners meets.
The future of Saginaw County Animal Control is also on the line this week. The department needs the county board to set aside $31,000 dollars that would keep four animal control officers and a veterinary technician employed during the month before a Nov. 2 vote.
That money would pay for the roving animal catchers and all operations at the center on Gratiot. So far, committees have said no.
Meanwhile, Saginaw's development director wants to perform a major face lift on one of the city's oldest apartment complexes.
According to published reports, Saginaw could award a bid to an architect to renovate Jefferson Apartments.
At one time, the Jefferson Apartments were Saginaw's most attractive place to live.
The city would use some of the $17 million in federal stimulus grants to fund the project.
The city bought the Millard Street structure for $160,000 and could invest about $3 million in renovations. The apartment first opened to occupants in 1925.
