Prince George’s Co. planning for $152M budget shortfall

Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker said the county is expecting a $152.2 million shortfall as officials plan the fiscal 2014 budget, forcing them to look at ways to preserve core county services, The Gazette reported.

“We’re going to do everything we can to make sure the quality of life in Prince George’s County increases,” Baker said at a budget forum earlier this week at Prince George’s Community College in Largo. Given the budget gap, everything — including money for public safety and education — is on the table, said Tom Himler, the county’s deputy chief administrative officer for budget, finance and administration.
