Local officials hope to ward off budget hits

Local government leaders say counties and municipalities are willing to work with the state on its budget crisis but shouldn’t be victimized by the state’s own budget-balancing efforts.

Maricopa County Supervisor Max Wilson says the state clearly faces another year of budget challenges that are sure to affect counties. But he adds that shifting state expenses to counties isn’t a fair or honest solution to the budget crisis.

Meanwhile, a resolution released Tuesday by the League of Arizona Cities and Towns says the 91 incorporated municipalities have their own budget troubles.

The resolution approved by the league’s executive committee expresses willingness to work collaboratively with state officials on budget issues and economic development.
