Seifert: efficiency, cost savings main priorities
Like most other government entities, the Goodhue County Board will face many financial decisions in the coming year, including setting the 2012 budget. And as the board's new chair, Ted Seifert said efficiency is key.
"Every government agency is under pressure financially," said Seifert, who was unanimously elected chair at the board's Jan. 4 meeting. "We have to make decisions about whether to increase revenue -- through taxes -- or reduce spending."
