mohave countyDepartment heads are being asked to trim expenditures as Mohave County prepares its 2015-16 spending plan. “All departments have been asked to submit a budget for this next fiscal year that includes a 5% decrease,” Administrator Mike Hendrix said during the March 16 Board of Supervisors meeting. Hendrix said he’s leaving department heads to decide how they wish to lower spending as the county deals with a tough budget process. “We are going to be entering some extremely difficult economic times, which will mean possible layoffs,” Hendrix said. He said it’ll be up to department heads to decide whether savings will come through reductions in personnel or operating costs.
