Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - This year's Cass County budget will increase by $2.5 million but the auditor says the county is in good financial shape.

The County began department negotiations on the nearly $77,000,000 2013 budget.

So far, they have added five new positions.

Three of those are in social services, owing to increasing caseloads.

They eliminated three other proposed new positions.

Michael Montplaisir, County Auditor: “Department this year really came in with budgets that were realistic. So the commissioners haven't had to do a lot of trimming, other than those three positions.”
