BSF project now under special projects budget

CROSSVILLE — County commissioners approved a host of budget amendments during Monday night's meeting including one for $1.235 million for placing the Gateway to the Big South Fork Visitor's Center into its own project in a Capital Projects Fund.

Resolution 09-2013-11 — a resolution budgeting the BSF project and increasing revenues of $600,000 of notes and $625,000 of health and welfare grants and $10,000 of donations into a capital project fund, was unanimously approved after a motion was made by Sonya Rimmer, 8th District commissioner. Rimmer's motion was supported by Dave Hassler, 3rd District commissioner.

The county commission also approved the following budget amendment resolutions:

• Resolution 09-2013-2 — a $2,000 amendment for expenses related to the possible sale or lease of the old health department facility;
