HEARING SET SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATION

Ione Siegler, Budget & Finance Director, requested the Board set a public hearing to consider a supplemental appropriation to the 2000 Current Expense Fund for the Auditor/Election Budget and the Facilities & Grounds/Jail Budget due to the cost of the November 2000 general election and the cost of utilities and repairs and maintenance in the Facilities & Grounds/Jail Department. The revenue will come from unanticipated timber revenue.

The Board questioned if there is some way of earmarking the funds for the end of the year when they are in a position that they are waiting for money that will not come for the following year.
