Supervisors amend county budget

Friday, May 8, 2009

The Cherokee County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing on Tuesday for an amendment to the 2009 fiscal year.

The amendment authorized funds to be redistributed from both the county's revenues and expenditures that have been altered by receipt of additional funds since the budget was certified. The changes brought the fund balance down $12,000, which as of June 30 would be a total of $2,516,628.

County Engineer Dave Shanahan brought a bridge contract for the Board to sign for a bridge project in Cherokee Township. Also Shanahan sought the approval of five driveway permits and three underground utility permits. The Board approved all.

Jay Loughlin, attorney for the Cherokee County Sanitary Landfill, needed the Board's approval on a local government guarantee for post closure care at the request of the Department of Natural Resources. The Board granted approval.

Michael Mutter of Purple Wave Inc., an online auction company, offered the Board his services for the liquidation of county surplus on equipment and other items no longer used by the county. The Board informed Mutter that there was no county surpluses on items or equipment.

Other business conducted by the Board was to adopt a resolution on the destruction of noxious weeds for the county.

Chairman Jeff Simonsen signed the final payouts for three county employees who recently retired.

The Board also accepted the Cherokee County Attorney's appointment of Jason Vanvactor to be a new member of the three person Civil Service Commission.
