County budget reveals 19 full, 4 part-time job cuts - 12 in sheriff's department

The 2007 proposed Winnebago County budget has been drafted and it reveals the county cutting approximately 23 positions. Of those, 19 are full-time, four are part-time - and 12 of them are being cut from the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department.

According to a story in today's Oshkosh Northwestern, Sheriff Mike Brooks originally presented a budget for his department which called for the elimination of 15 positions, but county executive Mark Harris felt that was too severe and left three of those positions intact by adding $200,000 back into Brook's budget. Still, even with the 12 cuts being proposed, Brooks says public safety should not be jeopardized.
