As Cook County commissioners begin looking at the budget and levy for 2020, they are meeting with department heads. As WTIP Community Radio does every year, our news department follows the process from start to finish. Listen to an interview with Cook County Administrator about the budget process here. 

The first department to fall under the county board's scrutiny is the Cook County Sheriff's Office. WTIP's Rhonda Silence sat down with Sheriff Pat Eliasen to ask him about his budget. Will it include the law enforcement center/jail facility expansion that was proposed last year? Or has that idea been dropped?
