Last night, the Monroe County Council began the budget adoption process for Monroe County as well as the Perry-Clear Creek Fire Protection District and the Monroe County Solid Waste Management District, by hearing the first reading of their budgets, tax levies, and tax rates.
The only change that was made during first reading last night was to correct a small error in the County General Fund budget with respect to the salary of the Veterans Affairs officer, increasing the General Fund budget from $20,333,963 to $20,334,639.
Tonight’s meeting will consist of the second reading of and final votes on the budget, tax levies, and tax rates for Monroe County, Perry-Clear Creek Fire Protection District, and Monroe County Solid Waste Management District. In addition, the Council will also hear the second reading of and vote on the Monroe County 2015 Salary Ordinance. Public comment will be taken on any of these budgets, rates, and levies.
The meeting begins at 5:30 PM tonight in the Nat U Hill Room of the Monroe County Courthouse and as usual the meeting will also be broadcast on CATS. Hope to see you there!
