Panel OKs budget amendments

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County Budget Committee a few budget amendments during its October monthly meeting earlier this week.

The fist amendment approved was for $34,799 for the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department in order to receive a grant from the state for a Governor's Highway Safety Grant to pay overtime compensation for deputies for impaired driving law enforcement activities. The grant is a 100 percent state and federally funded grant and requires no local matching funds.

It was approved after a motion by Dave Hassler, 3rd District commissioner. Hassler's motion was supported by Terry Carter, 6th District commissioner, and unanimously approved.

A $2,400 amendment was approved for the Clerk and Master for Chancery Court for an additional scanner for the administration office. The revenues are designated and reserved in the general fund for the purpose of improving and maintaining computer technology in the Clerk and Master's office.

It was approved unanimously after a motion for approval was made by Carter. Carter's motion was supported by Mike Harvel, 7th District commissioner.

An amendment of up to $25,000 was also approved for the solid waste department to apply for a grant for recycling equipment.

"This is to buy another forklift for recycling. The one we've got down there is in bad shape for what we do with it. This requires a 40 percent match from the county, but that would come out of the sanitation department fund balance," Harvel said.

The grant is available from Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.

Carmin Lynch, 9th District commissioner, pointed out the resolution for the budget amendment should contain the dollar figure for the grant and amendment. Lynch no longer serves on the budget committee, but attended the meeting.

Carter made the motion for approval with the addition of adding the grant amount and it was supported by Hassler.

Harvel serves as assistant solid waste director and abstained from the vote.
