Salt Lake County commissioners have found a way to give mental-health officials the money they want without having to raise taxes.

The commission voted Friday to adopt the 1991 budget, which holds the line on property taxes. Officials from Valley Mental Health, the agency that has a contract to provide services to indigent people in need of mental-health care, had complained that commissioners cut their budget in order to avoid a tax hike.But those cuts were restored Friday, as was a cut that would have jeopardized a swimming pool project in West Jordan.

Commissioners took money from county surplus funds and decided to cut $170,000 from as-yet unnamed projects.
