Kamenetz: County needs $15.8 m to save nearly 200 positions.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said finding money to restore nearly 200 teaching positions slated to fall to the budget ax may be difficult given cuts in state.

“I appreciate the efforts of the General Assembly to identify additional funds,” he said. “However, the funds don’t offset the additional costs passed down (from the state) to Baltimore County.”

More than a dozen legislators sent Kamenetz a letter Tuesday asking him to use additional funds added to the Gov. Martin O’Malley’s proposed 2012 budget to prevent the expected reduction of teachers.

Kamenetz said restoring the positions to the budget, when he announces it two weeks, will cost $15.8 million.

Decreased aid for schools and costs passed on to the county from the state make that money harder to find.
