A copy of the line item transfers is available for public review in the Clerk's Office.

FY 2012-2013 Budget Discussion
Clerk Odde presented the latest projected revenue figures for the 2012-2013 Budget . Due to uncertainty regarding the annual PILT payment, it is necessary to reduce the proposed budget by roughly $760,000.00 If the PILT payment is approved at the federal level, it will be received in June, 2013, and the amount received will be used as a “real number” in the FY 2013-2014 budget. Clerk Odde asked the Commissioners to review the proposed budget to determine where the necessary adjustments should be made.
After a thorough review, several line items were adjusted to bring the proposed budget into balance. The final public budget hearing will be held on Monday, July 16th at 12:00 p.m.
