Letter to the editor: Summit County should be transparent about its budget

I totally agree with Mike Tabb and Kim McGahey: A 37% increase in spending over two years is fiscally irresponsible for Summit County. The inflation rate in 2018 was 2.49%, and in 2019 it was 1.81%.

A large percentage of properties in Summit County are second homes. The owners do not require essential services such as school funding. They use many services, such as public transportation, but support the community by spending money at restaurants, shops, ski areas, etc.

I would like the county to publish a synopsis of their budget each year in the Summit Daily News as a public service. Voters need to be informed of revenue and expenditures without having to search online.
