County approves budget

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The Levy County Commission did a little housekeeping on the proposed 2010-2011 budget in a special meeting on Monday  and then approved the $58,531,978 spending plan.
Property owners will not have their millage — 7.4212 mills — raised, nor will county employees be receiving a raise in pay. But the commission will be absorbing the cost of an 11.8 percent increase in the employees' health insurance for the workers and their families.
The approval of the budget did not come without some tweaking as funds were shuffled with some expenditures being combined into the general fund and other items being pad for in the current year were taken from next year's budget.
The actions shrunk the budget by $302,889 from the $58,834,867 approved a week ago.
The county will enter the new fiscal year on Oct. 1 with only $1.2 million in reserves.
The Board of Commissioners will meet on Thursday, Sept. 30, at 9 a.m. to pay any remaining bills and close out the 2009-2010 budget.
