Budget adjustments approved

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

The Cherokee County Board of Supervisors approved amendments to the budget for the present fiscal year at the regular meeting on Tuesday.

A public hearing was held prior to approval of the budget amendment, but no member of the general public appeared at the public hearing to address the amendment.

There was a downward adjustment of $34,724 to the ending fund balance, primarily resulting from two unanticipated expenditures.

Capital improvements to the courthouse, including tuckpointing, will cost $25,000. The medical examiner budget was increased by $9,500 because of the need for autopsies, an item that can only be guessed at when making the budget during the previous fiscal year.

There are also flow-through items, where unbudgeted revenues are equal to unbudgeted expenses. The largest item in this category is the general obligation bond proceeds for the landfill project. This amount is $2,869,570.

The public hearing for the budget of the next fiscal year will occur on March 4.

The supervisors also approved a vacation of a section of road that the county owns. The 782-foot section is located in section 1 of Amherst Township. The total area that the county is vacating is about 0.6 acres.

Like this week's meeting, the meeting scheduled for Feb. 26 will have a light agenda. The supervisors have moved the starting time to 10 a.m. from the regular starting time of 9 a.m.
