library by $1 million. community college by about $1 million. it does not affect the rest of the budget. i would like to take care of that because the shift of the teacher pension would be over $5 million. it would be easier for us to take care of the doomsday budget. >> the teacher pensions -- you are prepared to absorb that. >> we have thought about the issues on how to handle that. we do not know because the numbers have changed constantly on what it would be. $3 million, $9 million. until we know what the final number will be cut it is difficult for us to decide how we can handle that. -- , it is difficult for us to decide how we can handle that. anything that the state does on this issue will affect education. the reality is that the budget could have been presented at the state level as a flat budget because it is $1 billion bigger
than last year. you do not put money into the rainy day fund when you do not have money. if they raise taxes, people who are making $75,000 are considered rich, that is not good. >> you have no idea what will happen in terms of cuts, layoffs, furloughs? >> i anticipate we will not do any cuts or furloughs of employees at this point. their salaries are flat. this is the fourth year i had to present a budget were no employee has gotten a pay increase. they're lucky to have jobs, but they do a great job and they do deserve to get something in the future. >> let us talk about what is going on with the hartford fire in the ems commission. a lot of controversy in some of the volunteers are not happy with you. >> most of the volunteers are happy that we are finally making progress in moving forward. there was a study done in 2009
on what needed to be done and it is not just about the fire service. it is about public safety. it includes the sheriff's office. it is much broader than just fire. we have 12 good fire in the ems companies that do a great job and have continued to do that. the county has grown and we need to be prepared for the future. the study recommended that we create a fire in him as commissioned here we are probably changing the name of that to a public safety commission. it is an advisory commission. they will give advice on what we should do in the future. it gives its ties to the fire service, me, it has no power over changing anything. there was concern among the firefighters and ems people that this would preempt what they do. we will make sure that it does not do that. we will roll out an executive order on tuesday to firmly establish something so we can move forward and get harford county ready for the future. >> in terms of the volunteer
companies, you are looking to add to that? >> we look at its -- 75% of the ambulance calls are driven by someone who is being paid. they're being paid for the foundation or being paid through an individual volunteer fire company. we have to come up with a unified effort on how that is done. we need a source of revenue to make sure we can do that. cost is $10 million right now to provide that service. something new. >> a new southern police district? >> yes. we opened one in the spring for the sheriff's office and then next to that, we will have a southern resource center. a new health apartment building. that is where most of the people in hartford county -- that is where they live. we want them to be close. >> what kind of growth that you experience? >> 250,000 population growth.
we have to catch up. i had to condemn the health department building, which was not good. we had to tear it down. we are renting space and the rental cost is higher than it would cost to build a new building. it is much more efficient to build. >> you have traffic centers everywhere. people moving. you have to beat -- >> 11 new schools. for more on the list. -- four more on the list. it is not brand new schools, just reconstruction. this was the first we had no overcrowding. we have hit that mark. we need to work added. >> thank you for coming in. good luck with everything. next week, our guest is the president of the maryland jockey club. if you have a question, ascended in -- sent in. -- send it in. we will be right back. here is david gregory with a look of what is coming up on
