FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- Administrators in Davis County have begun nine days of public budget meetings, amid projections for a flat spending plan in 2011.

County commissioners were told Monday that tourism tax dollars may come in above projections for 2010.

But flood control projects and county golf courses may be at a deficit.

County Clerk and Auditor Steve Rawlings says the county attorney's office may seek a funding increase to deal with several high-profile criminal cases, and public defenders may seek more to handle rising caseloads.

The Standard-Examiner reports the sheriff's office hopes to put 11 more patrol vehicles on the road.

County budget sessions end Oct. 21, with commissioners due to vote on a budget in November.
