Hiring Freeze in Lake County? Yeah right!

The talk within the county seems to be that there will be a hiring freeze next year, per Gerry Scheub. The Times even caught wind of it.

I highly doubt that it will happen. It's been promised before, and it never seems to happen. That's what all of the county employees I've spoken with think, and that's what I think. It would be nice with the current tax situation -- we'll just have to wait and see...

Do you think the hiring freeze will actually happen or is this just another empty promise as elections approach?

Every Lake County government entity is heading downstate to get special dispensation to break through the tax caps ... they are probably just pretending to freeze to make them look better when they go downstate to raise rates again.
