The Washington County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing as part of their meeting yesterday morning to discuss amendments to the fiscal year 2011 budget. County Auditor Bill Fredrick shared that these amendments cover additional revenues and expenditures. He says an additional almost eight million dollars in revenue was received from road bonds and expenditures in public health and environmental health and conservation were offset by revenues.
Fredrick says every year they have to do at least one budget amendment and limited the amendments this year to one due to the time and expense. The Supervisors approved the budget amendments. Fredrick notes that no amendments can be made to the budget after the end of May.
The Board of Supervisors meet each week in the Washington County Courthouse.
