FAYETTEVILLE -- The proposed Washington County budget for next year will be larger than this year's, even as elected officials try to reorganize positions, increase efficiency in departments and reduce costs for equipment and supplies, county records show.

Budget meeting

The first meeting on the 2018 Washington County budget is set for 5:30 p.m. Sept. 12 at the courthouse. Several other days have been set aside this month for tentative Finance and Budget Committee meetings. The budget must be approved by Dec. 31.
