County OKs budget amendments

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County Commission approved two budget amendment resolutions during its monthly meeting earlier this week.

The first was resolution 12-2012-2 — a budget amendment resolution in the amount of $1,965.63 for the sale of a 1974 GMC truck that was bought and used by the Pleasant Hill 8th District Volunteer Fire Department.

By passing the resolution, the county authorizes the proceeds of the sale of the truck to benefit the 8th District Volunteer Fire Department.

It was approved after a motion was made by Sonya Rimmer, 8th District commissioner. It was supported by Dave Hassler, 3rd District commissioner and unanimously approved.

The second was resolution 12-2012-3 — a budget amendment resolution for the Art Circle Library in the amount of $9,406.75.

Earlier this month, Cumberland County Finance Director Nathan Brock explained the state comptroller's office had advised the county the funds generated from collecting fees needed to be under the control of the county's general fund. The amendment allows for a transition to recognize the revenue and appropriate amount of the funds to go back to the library.

As of the end of November, the library generated $9,406.75 in the fiscal year. The amendment includes an increase in revenue by that amount and and also includes an increase in expenditures for the library under "other charges," which will allow the library's board discretion in spending.

The resolution states funds generated by the library will be remitted to the county on a monthly basis and accounted for as revenue. The intent then is to periodically return those funds to the library's expenditure budget for the remainder of the fiscal year.

The resolution was approved after a motion by Allen Foster, 4th District commissioner, was made and supported by 7th District Commissioner Mike Harvel.

It was unanimously approved, but Harry Sabine, 1st District commissioner, abstained from the vote because he serves on the library board of directors.

Commissioners Larry Allen, 6th District, and Johnny Presley, 3rd District, did not attend the meeting.
