Chelan County Commissioners will be tightening the purse strings again next year with a no frills
budget. The 30.6 million dollar spending plan was adopted Tuesday but no one in the Commissioners’ chambers

this year. Commission Chairman, Doug England told Wenatchee Bureau Chief Steve Hair spoke that until the economy
emerges from recession you can expect more belt tightening for the foreseeable future . .
