|Five days before he takes office as the new Baltimore County Executive, Councilman Kevin Kamenetz today unveils what he says are “cost saving initiatives” that he will propose on Monday when he takes office.
Kamenetz is expected to include plans to consolidate some services in county government.
Kamenetz will outline the plans at a news conference in Towson.
These initiatives are part of transition work which has taken place over the last month.
Kamenetz has previously said there will be job cuts in county government, but only through attrition and not through layoffs.
Kamenetz had also asked the county’s administrative officer and director of information technology to study ways to make county government more efficient.
On Monday, Kamenetz will take the oath of office to succeed current Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith who is stepping down due to term limits.
Smith has been on a “farewell tour” this week appearing at a number of events including the dedication of West Towson Elementary School on Tuesday.
