From the CEO Burrell Ellis: "DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis applauded the vote of the DeKalb Board of Commissioners regarding the 2011 mid-year budget adjustments. "The majority of the Board of Commissioners stepped up to the plate and made a courageous vote to preserve the county's ability to provide essential government services - public safety, criminal justice and infrastructure, and to rebuild our reserve fund," said CEO Ellis. "Rebuilding our reserve is essential in maintaining a strong credit rating and in reducing costs." The mid-year budget adjustment eliminates an additional 250 positions and calls for 3 unpaid holidays for county employees, as well as an additional $23 million in spending cuts. Since 2009, the total of all spending reductions is $130 million, with a total of 696 in job cuts. Also included in the vote was a property millage increase. The impact of the additional 4.35 mills on an average home in DeKalb County is $93.
