IN RE:  RESOLUTION APPROVING COUNTY FY 2006-07 ANNUAL BUDGET

A public hearing was held on June 8 to receive citizens comments regarding the County’s FY 2006-2007 annual budget.  There was no opposition to the proposed budget.

Assistant Administrator Scott advised the Board that there have been no changes to the budget as advertised.  However, there has been some communication between the Treasurer and Equitable Resources regarding possible payment of their taxes owed to the County, which is in excess of $1,000,000.00.  There has also been some discussion regarding the possibility of restoring the $100,000.00 to the School Board if the payment from Equitable Resources is received.

There was discussion among the Board members as to the wisdom of increasing the School Board budget because of the possible problems of level funding next year.  Supervisor Adkins and Meador expressed their concern, but others thought that with revenue from Equitable Resources next year, this would not be a problem.

A motion was made by Leland Branham, seconded by Steve Bates, to approve the County’s FY 2006-07 budget as advertised to be increased by $100,000.00 to restore funding for the School system.
