Merced County planning reductions in all departments

Though there's a lot of blank canvas left, Merced County leaders aren't painting a rosy picture of this year's budget. With an estimated deficit of $10 million, the county executive office is working toward a reduction of 12.5 percent in all departments, except public safety. It is expected to take a 7.5 percent cut.
